Sop Ch Serigne Mokhtar Group's story

The solidarity group Sop Serigne Mokhtar was created on March 29th, 2008. The group is composed of eight women who live in the same village and share the fattening of livestock as their main business.

Awa, the person in charge, is a 39-year-old married woman as well as the mother of six children. She manages a livestock fattening business, and has had a good track-record in this domain.

In the photo, Awa is standing on the right dressed in brown & white wax [pagne cloth] with the blue shawl over her shoulders. She purchases skinny rams, which she then fattens and resells before her loan repayments.

Her loan will allow her to buy rams in order to continue to strengthen her business. She helps her husband to support their family.

In this group: Awa, Mame Awa, Aïssatou, Ndiaya, Fama, Laobe, Fatou, Astou
