Linguère De Keur Mambaye Group's story

The "Linguère de Keur Manbaye" group is comprised of 5 women, all married. They all have retail activities related to agriculture, cloth, fish and vegetables that they have been involved with for 7 years. The president (seen in the photo wearing stripes) is a mother of four children, two of whom attend school. She supports their schooling fees as well as covering her own costs of living. In order to improve their businesses, these women are asking for a loan of 990,000f (approximately 2000 USD) in order to purchase millet, peanut butter, dried fish and cloth. They aim to increase their retail activity.

In this group: Aïda , Nafy , Nogoye, Aïssatou, Mame
