Konde's Group's story

The Banc Villageois that supports this group of twenty-four women was created on December 14, 2008. The women live in the same village, and their main business is essentially retail trade.

Kondé, their representative, is 61 years old. She is a widow, and mother of eight children (2 boys and 6 girls). She conducts a small retail trade of “sankhal” or millet made into flour. She benefits from ten years of experience in this domain. She is standing and raising her right hand on the right in the group photo.

Kondé sells what she produces in markets in the city and in her local community. She plans on using her loan to buy 2 tons of millet to be made into “sankhal” flour, thus increasing her income. She is the only person in her village engaged in this activity. Her earnings allow her to support her family and help her married daughters in their households.

In this group: Konde, Fatou Bara, Diakhate, Mame Gniassa, Penda, Anta, Penda, Ngosse, Coumba, Ndeye Binta, Bintou, Fatou, Maguette, Rokhaya, Fama, Ramata, Siny, Awa, Ndeye, Aïssatou, Sokhna, Ndeye, Binetou, Maty
