Fatou's Group's story

This group was established on December 13, 2008. The 33 members of which it is made up know each other well and live in the same village.

Fatou, 45 years old and standing at right in the photo, is a mother of five. With the loan, she sells dried fish and oysters, which has been her main business for several years. In addition to that, she also fattens sheep; she is purchasing four lambs that she plans to resell in the next four months.

The profits allow her to meet the needs of her children and she also plans to support her husband in maintaining the household.
