Nene's Group's story

The 'banc villageois' of Dagga was created on December 29, 2009. It is composed of women with good social cohesion. Their main work involves commerce.

Standing at the far right in the photo, Déguène is the featured borrower. She is 52 years old, married, and the mother of six children, of whom four are girls and two are boys.

With the received loan, she is going to purchase some smoked and dried fish in Kayar. She purchases the 50-kg basket at 22,500 francs each. She also purchases sugar and rice in bulk to resell.

She will use part of the profits from the sales to build a store and to increase her sales. With the rest, she will support her husband and children in covering family expenses.
