Nogoye's Group's story

Since its creation on December 13, 2008, this group has been developing thanks to the growing solidarity between its members, who are all small-scale retailers.

Khady, who is standing on the right in the photo with her hand raised, is 50 years old. She is married and has 2 daughters.

Her main business is small-scale retail. With the loan, she will buy chili, pepper, garlic, onions, etc., that she will re-sell to retail clients from a display set up in front of her home. Additionally, she also fattens sheep. She is going to buy 2 sheep for 20,000 F each and re-sell them after 6 months. The resulting income will help build up her savings.

In this group: Nogoye, Maty, Ndeye Bamby, Amy, Fama, Soda, Fatou, Issa, Mame Bousso, Sokhna, Ataya, Yombe, Khady, Mame Saye , Fatimata , Daba , Mareme, Soda, Magatte
