Marame's Group's story

This group consists of 25 women who live in he same village and practice farming and commerce.

They are represented by Ndéye, who previously benefited from five loans from the external account, which she repaid without difficulty. She is the 53-year-old married mother of five children. Her activity is small trade. She has extensive experience in this field. In the photo, she is on the left, dressed in pink.

She buys vegetables (carottes, turnips, onions, eggplants, okra, etc.) at the weekly markets of Ngouye Mbeut and Keur Momarsarr to sell in her village.

She plans to use her loan to buy vegetables to sell and a ram for fattening. This should help to bolster her income.
