Nael's Group's story

This group of 14 members is part of a Banc Villageois created in 2001. It comprises women who are very united, socially, and within the group. Their main activity is small retail.

The group's representative, Fatou, is 48 years old. In the photo, she is standing at the right-hand side, raising her hand. She is married and the mother of two children, a girl and a boy.

She is using her loan to buy some bags of vegetables in Thiaroye of Dakar to resell in her town (some cabbage for 5,000 francs, cassava for 10,000 francs, pimiento for 5,000 francs and carrots for 7,500 francs). She spends 10,000 francs for transportation and stocks up every week.

With her profits, Fatou is able to buy her own food, to pay her child's school fees, and to boost her savings.

In this group: Nael, Ndiaya, Mame Bousso, Mame Bineta, Astou, Aïssatou, Mame Bou Gaye*, Dieynaba, Fatou, Fatou, Thiane, Maïmouna, Ndeye Thioro, Amy
