A loan of $1,025 helped a member to buy ewes.


Deggo Group's story

The Deggo group was created in the first cycle of the banc villageois. It is currently composed of nine women who all live in the same village and share strong social ties. Madame Thiané (standing on the left and raising her hand) is responsible for the group. She is 48, married, and has three children and three others under her care. Thiané has been a member of the banc villageois since its creation. She has worked fattening sheep for almost thirty years. Her new loan of 50,000 francs will allow her to buy ewes which she will fatten and re-sell after four or five months. This will allow her to buy food, but also to cover her personal needs.

In this group: Absa, Fatou, Fatou, Fatou, Ndéye , Fatou, Fatimata, Kéne, Thiané
