Jammiyatou Takhwoun 2 Group's story

The group "Jammiyatou Takhwoun 2" is a solidarity group composed of five men from the same central region of the country. They have commercial businesses involving grain products. They buy large quantities inland, stock them, and then resell them when the market demand is low. This business enables them to take care of their families and to support themselves.

The head of the group (wearing pants and a shirt at the left in the photo) is a former student who left university after two years to get started in commerce. Thus he has a store selling peanuts, millet, beans, and other farm produce. He also sells peanut plant stalks used as food for sheep and cattle in stables.

To bolster its business capital, the group is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs to buy grain products.

In this group: Aly, Ibrahima , Abdou , Aliou , Amadou
