Takku Liggey Group's story

The solidarity group Takku Liggey was created on December 14, 2008. It consists of 6 women who are "fighters", hence the name given to the group. Their main activity is retail business. Fatou is the group's representative. She is 55 years old, married, and the mother of 5 children. She is actively involved in the trade of used clothing and has a good experience in this field. She is standing to the right in the photo, raising her left hand, and she is wearing a multicolored boubou with a black shawl wrapped around her shoulders. She buys and sells at the central market of the city. Her loan will be used to develop and diversify her business. Fatou takes care of her family's needs, specifically education and healthcare needs.
