Ndeye's Group's story

The "banc villageois" that this group belongs to was created on the 1st of February, 2000. It is made up of 6 women who live in the same village and are all retailers. Ndèye is the group representative. She is 58 years old, married and the mother of 3 children, 2 boys who are 35 and 18 years old, and one 10-year-old girl. She is standing on the far right in the picture and wearing the blue and white boubou. She plans to use her loan to buy 20 bags of millet (at 250 000 per bag) and 6 bags of beans (at 150 000 francs per bag). The profits generated by her business allow her to take care of her family's food needs and to build her savings in the "banc villageois".
