Boffel Group's story

This group consists of two women who live in the same village. They stand by each other and their main businesses are agriculture, breeding and shopkeeping.

Anta is responsible for the group, treasurer of the "Banc Villageois" and is 42 years old. This is a married woman and mother to two daughters. She is active in shopkeeping, she has a boutique in her home and works in collaboration with her husband; she also breeds. She capitalizes on a good experience of more than 20 years. On the photo, she is standing to the right dressed in blue and has raised her left hand.

She buys her products (sugar, rice, oil, café, biscuits.....) in town and resells in her village.

With her loan she hopes to buy 2 cows at 100,000F each, and 5 sheep for bovine and ovine fattening; strengthen her boutique and plans to resell the animals in 5 months to prepare her repayment.

With her profits she contributes to the family expenses (health, food, clothing), strengthens her savings and repays her loan.

In this group: Faty, Anta
