Bakh Yaye Group's story

The Bakh Yaye group was created after the first cycle of the "banc villageois" and currently has 7 members. It is made up of women who all live in the same village and are united by social bonds.

Maguette is 34 years old, married and the mother of 3 children. She is standing on the left of the picture, wearing a blue dress, and is the group's leader. She has been selling vegetables for nearly 5 years. She has a good experience in this area. Her new loan of 200 000 francs will enable her to buy some merchandise (lettuce, parsley, tomatoes, etc.). The profits she makes allow her to save money with the "banc villageois" and also to strengthen her business.

In this group: Coumba, Fatou, Kany, Ndéye, Fatou, Marième, Maguette
