A loan of $5,700 helped a member to buy oxen and sheep for fattening.

Nogoye's Group's story

This group is made up of 21 women who live in the same village and are principally arable and livestock farmers.

Diogo, the group's leaders, is 62 years old, married and the mother of 4 children; 2 girls and 2 boys. She is a livestock farmer with over 20 years' worth of good experience. She is standing on the right of the picture, with her right hand raised, dressed in a purple boubou. She gets her animals (sheep and oxen) at the weekly markets of Gouye Mbeuth and Thiamène, and resells them in the village.

Using the loan and her own contribution, she would like to buy 4 sheep and 5 oxen for sheep- and cow-fattening; this will enable her to earn a considerable income on resale. She uses her profits to help her husband with the family expenses and builds her savings.

In this group: Nogoye, Khoudia, Mareme, Khayta, Awa, Ndiaye Mbaye, Fatimata, Ngone, Mame Diaw, Awa, Faty, Seynabou, Ramata, Alima, Fama, Fatimatou, Nogoye, Coumba, Dieynaba, Diogo, Thiama
