Magatte's Group's story

This group has been in existence since December 30, 2009. It is made up of 37 women from the same village. They get along well and all work mainly in business and animal fattening. Madame Fatou, the lead borrower, is 36 years old. Divorced, she is the mother of 6 children (3 girls, 3 boys). As a business, she sells food products and also practices beef and mutton fattening. She has several years of experience. In the photo, she is standing up at the right, wearing a pink-brown-beige sari and raising her left hand. She stocks up in rice, oil, and millet in Louga and resells in her village where she has a store next to her home. With this loan, she images increasing her stock by buying 10 bags of rice and 10 bags of millet and hopes thus to make a lot of profit upon their sale. With the profits anticipated, she wishes to diversify her business by investing in the fattening business..
