Book Djoubo Keur Gallo Group's story

The Book Djoubo Keur Gallo loan group has five female members, who are very active and all live in the same village. Some work in agriculture, while others work raising livestock. Their president is called Coumba (pictured with a beautiful smile), and she has worked for more than 30 years in raising cattle. With this loan, she plans to buy onion and carrot seeds, fertilizers, and manure. She starts her working day at 6 in the morning, and finishes at 4 pm.

Coumba is married, and her business allows her to support her husband with the household expenses. With an increase in her income, she plans to extend her market gardening business.

In this group: Coumba, Sadio, Khardiata, Aminata, Diarietou
