Mareme's Group's story

This group of 10 women is part of the "banc villageois" which was created on the 6th of July, 2006. The group is made up of women who live in the same village and neighbouring villages. Most of them are traders.

Khady, who is married and the mother of 2 boys, is 35 years old. She is standing and raising her hand in the picture. She practises livestock fattening and works with her husband. With the loan she receives she will buy 2 sheep and livestock feed, and her husband will take care of fattening and reselling the animals. She plans to use the profits to get material she needs for her home. She also takes care of her children's school and medical expenses.
