A loan of $1,450 helped a member to buy sheep.

Takou Ligueye Group's story

This group, created at the opening of the banc villageois, is composed of 10 women who live around the same location.

Madame Khady, standing on the far right of the photo, is the leader of the group. She is 46 years old, married and the mother of 3 children. She is also responsible for the 3 children of her co-spouse.

She works as a sheep fattener. With this loan she is going to buy sheep for fattening that she can then resell. She is experienced in this domain, having practiced this trade for many years.

Her profits will permit her to support her husband in taking care of the family, for example, by helping to improve their nourishment.

In this group: Khady, Mane, Coumba, Daba, Djiguene, Sokhna, Diague, Aby, Dibor, Ndeye
