And Siggil Hann 14 Group's story

The Association And Siggil Hann includes several women residing in one of the Dakar suburbs. Initially they attended weekly tontines [savings groups] that allowed them to be self-sufficient and support their income generating activities. Currently the association has signed a partnership with UIMCEC for the economic empowerment of women to better help them manage their operations and fight against poverty.

Thus Siggil Hann 14 includes 12 women who live in the same region and work in the same industry. They engage in commercial activities and are represented by Ndeye. She is a married woman who sells fish and at the same time has done microgardening for over 20 years. She is a member of one of the branches of UIMCEC and is requesting a loan to purchase fish to resell. She aims to expand her business activity to increase her income, pay for the daily expenses of her family, and better support her children. Her next project is to acquire a refrigerated truck.

In this group: Ndeye , Absa, Aita, Kadidiatou, Amy, Marème, Absa, Maimouna, Marième, Amy, Rokhaya, Nogaye
