Rokhy's Group's story

The "banc villageois" of which this group of 8 women is part, was created on October 24, 2007. It consists of members who live in the same village and the surrounding villages. The members get along well and are very united. Their main businesses are shopkeeping and animal fattening.

Rockhy, sitting on the chair and raising her hand, is 43 years old. She is married and mother to 2 boys.

With the loan she is going to buy an ox to fatten it at 200,000 f and food to feed it. She is also going to take care of the veterinary expenses. With the rest of the money she simultaneously manages the sale of bissap and mil [African cereal].

She plans to help her family especially with food needs and medical expenses. She also plans to strengthen her savings.

In this group: Rokhy, Ndeye, Ndeye, Rokhy, Diouma, Oumy, Amy, Coumba
