Takku Liggey Ndiebel Group's story

The loan group Takku Liggey Ndiebel is a mixed group combining men and women who work in the agriculture sector. They joined together and approached the microfinance institution IMCEC to finance their revenue-generating businesses, such as farming, which is the main one. Ms. Marie, who is the group's official, owns an inherited plot of land she has been putting to use for over five years now. She is going to purchase some seeds and fertilizer. She works with her husband in the fields along with her oldest son, who helps too. Thus, managing the day-to-day expenses is entirely a family affair. Ms. Marie has the ambition to build a large chicken coup and to raise chickens for roasting or frying.

In this group: Marie, Abdoul Aziz, Albert, Amsatou, Siga, Papa, Soda, Amsatou, Diomaye, Babacar, Fatou, Aida, Seynabou, Fatou, Peinda, Oumy, Maimooouna
