And Jàppo Keur Serigne Louga Est Group's story

"Banc Villageois And Jappo Keur Serigne Louga Est" has existed since December 27, 2010. The group PC 01 is composed of five women who are joined in solidarity and who are merchants for the most part.

Ms. Anta Diama, the group's official, is 45 years old; she is married and the mother of six children. She has a business selling shoes and perfumes and has good experience. In the photo, she is standing at the right with her right hand raised and is dressed in a pink 'boubou'.

She goes to Touba to stock up on shoes of all types and perfumes to resell in her district.

With her loan, she is going to purchase shoes at 2,500 francs and 5,000 francs a pair and some perfumes to increase her offerings and also to bring in large revenues.

The profits obtained will enable her to help her husband with family expenses and to ensure that the children's schooling costs are covered.
