Keur Ale Marame Group's story

The Keur Ale Marame Village Bank was created on September 19, 2012. 36 women from five different villages form the group and they are active in business, animal husbandry, and agriculture. Fama is president of the Village Bank. She is the manager and 36-years old. She is married and mother of five children, three of which are boys. She is in the business of sheep fattening and the sale of fish at the same time. She has over three years of solid experience and is an expert in her domain because the whole village only waits for her fish for their meals. In the photo, she is on the right with her left hand raised. With her loan, she plans to buy three sheep for 22500 francs, one to fatten for resale in a few months. She also buys fish every day worth 12500 francs that she resells in her village. She supports her family's nutrition, health, education, and daily expenses.
