Khemesse's Group's story

This group of 19 women is part of the 'banc villageois' created on December 13, 2008. It is composed of energetic members in solidarity with one another. Their businesses involve commerce and livestock farming.

Khemesse, who is standing at the right in the photo with her hand raised, is 38 years old, married, and the mother of ten children, including one boy. With this loan, she intends to fatten sheep. She has been in this business since joining the 'banc villageois'. She is going to purchase a head of sheep at 40,000 francs that she will raise. With the rest of the money, she will purchase feed and also be able to afford veterinary care. She will raise the sheep and sell it for 75,000 francs after five months. With the profits, she bolsters her savings and will care for her children.

In this group: Khemesse, Ndiole Fatou, Mane, Khemesse, Penda, Codou, Maguette, Khady, Mame Saye, Oumy, Daba, Arame, Yacine, Mariama*, Ndack, Astou, Maguette, Sokhna, Aïda
