A loan of $4,150 helped a member to purchase 4 head of sheep.

Ndiolle's Group's story

The 'banc villageois' to which this group of six women belong has been in existence since 2007. The members composing it live for the most part in the same village. They do commerce and raise livestock.

Dieynaba, who is standing at the right with her hand raised in the photo, is 43 years old, married, and the mother of five children, including two girls. With this loan, she is going to purchase 4 head of sheep at 50,000 francs each. Fattening them will take six months. So, to feed the animals, she will purchase 75,000 francs worth of feed. She is planning on a good price upon selling the sheep at 130,000 francs each. Sales are general made at the weekly markets in her town. With the profits, she envisions building a store or warehouse.

In this group: Ndiolle, Fatou Sarr, Dieynaba, Saye, Laba, Mbacke
