Ndack's Group's story

This group has existed since December 30, 2009. It is composed of 29 women from the same village. They get along well with each other and their main activities are sales and raising livestock.

Mrs. Ndack, the leading borrower of the group, is 38 years old, and the mother of three children: two girls and one boy. She runs a small business selling shoes, hand bags, and kitchen utensils. She has several years experience with this type of work. In the photo she is standing to the right and dressed in a multi-colored dress, with her hand raised.

She buys her shoes, hand bags, bowls, plates, etc., in Louga to re-sell at the market in her village.

She foresees, with her loan, buying 20 hand bags, 25 pairs of shoes, and fabric in order to earn substantial income from her sales.

With her profits, she would like to build up her savings in order to be able to pay back her loan quickly.
