Ndeye Fatou's Group's story

This group of eighteen women is part of a "Banc Villageois" loan association launched on 15 December 2008. The women live in the same neighborhood and share many common activities. They are active in commerce, sewing and raising livestock. The group representative, Mrs. Ngaïdo, is 56 years old. She is a married woman with three children including a boy. She is very dynamic, serious in her work and was twice granted an individual loan for small businesses (PIPE). She is active in the trading of fabrics, fruit and vegetables, and has good experience in these areas. She is standing to the right raising her hand. With this new loan she intends to buy fabrics to resell during Tabaski (holy Muslim day), because it works well and she will be able to generate a lot of income. With her profits she supports her family's needs.

In this group: Ndeye Fatou, Ngaïdo, Mame Touty, Khadidiatou, Marame, Aminta, Boury*, Yacine, Fatou, Borso, Coumba Tacko, Awa, Seynabou, Awa, Fatou*, Khady, Ndeye Sano, Soda
