A loan of $3,300 helped a member to buy sheep to fatten.


Awa's Group's story

This group was formed on the 7th of July, 2011, the same day that the Nimzatt Sagatta "banc villageois" was created. It is made up of 30 women who all come from the same village and enjoy close bonds of family and friendship. The group's representative, Awa, is 30 years old, single and has no children. She breeds sheep and sells sweets at the Keur Momar market and the village school. She is the one standing on the far right of the picture with her hand raised. She hopes to use her loan to buy 2 sheep, so that she can fatten them up and then resell them. She would like to use the profits she makes to build up a certain level of savings that would allow her to benefit from a higher loan.
