A loan of $1,875 helped a member to buy "pagnes".


Ndeye Awa's Group's story

This group was set up on 13th December 2008 and the majority of its members live in the village and surrounding districts.

Fatou, who is 23 years old and standing on the right of the photo with her hand raised, is married and mother to a little girl. With this loan, she is planning to buy "pagnes" (pieces of colourful fabric) that she will resell in large towns. The profits she makes will enable her sufficient autonomy to take care of herself and her little girl as well enabling her to cover social needs.

In this group: Ndeye Awa, Maguette, Dieo, Fatou, Khady, Sokhna, Maty, Ndeye, Mame Saye, Oumy, Daba, Arame, Yacine, Khady*
