Book Ndeye Group's story

Adama is the president of the Book Ndeye Group, which includes five women who all live in the same district and who meet whenever necessary. She is shown in the photo with her hand raised. Adama is 55 years old, married and the mother of five children.

She is a merchant of diverse products, and she needs this loan to purchase the food supplies to make local juices, monkey bread, sugar, millet, brooms, and peanut paste. She has no specific dependents, and has had ten years of experience in this business. Adama begins her work day at 8:00 am and finishes at 6:00 pm. In the future she wants to expand her business, and increase her income so that she will no longer need to rely on group loans.

In this group: Adama, Cany, Fatou, Khady, Coumba
