Takku Liggey Dialegne N°2 Group's story

The five women members of the group, "Takku liggey dialegne n°2," are retailers. They purchase fabric and notions wholesale, and the divide the products among each other based on each person's investment. They sell the products at the local markets, but also from their homes. While running the business is difficult, they have been able to make a sufficient profit which has helped them take care of their needs and the needs of their children. The leader of the group (in the middle with her hand raised), sells fabric. She is a mother of four. She is responsible for paying their school expenses and buying them new clothes and shoes. The group is requesting a loan of 250,000 cfa francs to buy fabric and sewing notions. They hope to one day do business in Gambia.

In this group: Rokhy, Amie, Seynabou, Ndèye, Rokhaya
