A loan of $1,400 helped a member to carry out sheep fattening.

Wakeur Mousba Group's story

The Wakeur Mousba solidarity group, which belongs to the Banc Villageois in Nimzatt Keur Momar Sarr, was set up on 27th December 2010. It is made up of eleven women who are relatives and neighbors and get on well together; their main activities are trading and animal fattening.

The person responsible for the group is Mbarka, who is 32 years old. She is married and mother to three children, and she has a sheep fattening activity, in which she has good experience. In the photo she is standing on the right and dressed in a white and brown sari with her left hand raised.

She buys her animals at the weekly village market, which is an ideal place for reselling livestock. With her loan she is planning to buy sheep and goats to raise so that she can make a lot of money.

Her husband takes care of the family's expenses and she would like to increase her savings.

In this group: Jaballa, Kary, Dado, Awa, Mbarka, Penda, Thioukel, Diegane, Dieynaba, Anta, Awa
