Sop Serigne Fallou Group's story

This solidarity group was set up on 27 December 2010. It is made up of eight women who get along well and are very relaxed around each other. Their main activities are small-scale trade and fattening livestock.

The group leader, Yacine, is 33 years old. She is married and the mother of three children. She has been trading black-eyed peas and groundnuts for 2 years, so has quite a lot of experience. She is pictured on the far right in green and white.

Yacine buys and resells her products at the village market. With this loan, she hopes to build her business by buying supplies of black-eyed peas and groundnuts and thereby increase her revenue. The profits will go towards helping her husband with food costs and providing for her children.

In this group: Coumba, Ngone, Maguette, Dial, Cisse, Yacine, Khoury, Ndeye
