Ndiang Bambodj Mousdalipha Group's story

The Banc Villageois Ndiang Mbambodj Mousdalipha was created in December 27 2010. The PS group is made up of three very dynamic women all from the same neighborhood. They are related to each other and their main activity is retail. Mariama, the group's leader, is 26, single, with no children. She sells clothing and beauty products (make up, hair extensions, hair weaves), and shoes. She is standing on the right of the photo with a scarf around her head and her left hand raised.

Mariama obtains her supplies in Dakar and Touba to re-sell at the central market in Louga where she has a stall. With her loan, she will buy 1 box of hair extensions and weaves, 10 dozen children's outfits, and12 dozen pairs of shoes, to maximize her income. With the profit, she saves in the system each month, helps her family, manages her personal needs and plans to develop her business.

In this group: Mariama, Astou, Bintou
