Ndiaya's Group's story

This group was created on 21 December 2012 at the inauguration of the 'banc villageois' Maka Séreres. It is made up of women who get on very well and work to support one another. They all live in the same village, or nearby villages.

Khady (standing on the right of the photo, with her hand raised) is fifty-nine years old. She is married and has four children, of whom two are boys. She will use her loan to buy four sheep for 25,000 francs CFA each, and health products for 10,000 francs CFA. When the time comes to repay her loan, she will sell the sheep and use the profit to repay the loan.

In parallel with this, Khady runs a second business selling vegetables and sugar in the local village square, and at the weekly markets in the neighbouring village.

Khady uses her earnings to help her husband provide for the expenses of their family, and ensure the smooth running of their household.

In this group: Ndiaya, Ndèye, Soda, Maguette, Mbène, Khady, Khady, Bintou, Saye, Marème, Nar, Awa, Fatim, Thiena, Ndèye Ngoné, Amy, Coumba, Adama, Ndiolé, Fatou, Fatou, Soda
