Maguette's Group's story

This group consists of 24 members who are dynamic and share a bond of solidarity. Their activities revolve around commerce and animal fattening.

Fatou Ndiaye, age 65, is the group member standing on the right and raising her hand. She is the married mother of seven children, two of them boys. Her main activity is the sale of a local fruit juice made from sorrel and pain de singe (fruit of the baobab tree). She buys sorrel, sugar and pain de singe to prepare the juice that she sells in a school. She has been doing this for over five years, but this activity is now saturated, and the profits are less than satisfactory.

She plans to use her profits to bolster her savings and to buy food for her family.
