Ndeye Ndieme's Group's story

This group of 35 women is part of the "banc villageois" that was created on December 22, 2012. It consists of women from the same town and surroundings. They are all in retail business. They have good relationships at the heart of the "banc villageois."

Standing on the right in the photo and raising her hand, Awa is 49 years old. She is married and mother to 8 children, 4 boys, 4 girls.

With the loan received she is going to buy 2 sheep for 200,000 f and fatten them and livestock feed for their food. If money is left over I will prepared ice cream to sell it.

The profits will allow me to strengthen the sale of ice cream and also my savings. What I make from this business allows me to pay for electricity and ensure daily expenses are taken care of.
