Ndiare Group's story

The village lending group Ndiaré was created on December 30, 2009. The group is made up of 19 members who live together and maintain good relations.

Maguette, the group's president, is a 26 year old married woman and mother of three children, two of whom are boys. She does business selling kitchen utensils. She buys her merchandise at the weekly market in her area and resells in the village. In the photo, she is at the far right in blue and pink.

With this loan she foresees buying 100,000 CFA francs worth of utensils and with the remainder of the money she is going to buy a sheep to prepare for Eid al-Adha, an important Muslim holiday. With the profits she would like to increase her savings in order to increase her loan. She provides for her children's needs.

In this group: Bintou, Thouba, Sokhna, Ngone, Mareme, Fatou, Ndeye, Gaye, Nogaye, Maye, Dialle, Ndoumbe, Fatou, Maguette, Mbathio, Anta, Kine, Aminata, Nogaye
