Santhiaba Mosquee Ps Group's story

This group is part of a "banc villageois" loan association created May 11, 2001. It consists of 7 members active in retail trade .They have always refunded their loans on time and without difficulty.

Ndeye Tacko, who is raising her hand on the right of the photo, represents the group. She is 31 years old, single without children. For the past five years she has been actively selling dried fish, cosmetics and fruit juice.

She manages quite well given her experience, but sometimes it is difficult to see that customers honor their commitments.

The profits will be used to bolster her savings, to support herself, and help her brothers and sisters pay for tuition and food.

In this group: Ndeye Fatou Quine, Ndeye Tacko, Fatimata Sockna, Ndack, Salimata, Astou, Ndeye Fatou
