Djiguène Bakhna 59 Group's story

The Djiguène Bakhna 59 loan group is made up of 5 women who live in the same village. The village is located around 22 kilometres from the main town. Magatte Fara is the group leader. She is married and a mother; indeed, in the photo, she is carrying her youngest child on her back, who is 2 years old. She has been selling beauty products for 10 years. She starts her workday at 8 o'clock in the morning and finishes work at 8 o'clock at night, as she owns a small stall near her home. She supports her husband with the household expenses and would one day like to diversify her business.

In this group: Magatte Fara, Mariame, Fama, Adji Fatou, Déguène
