Book Yakar Ndiol Group's story

The AND BOOK YAKAR NDIOL group is a female group made up of 10 people. They live in the same village and are in the same business, which is agriculture. They meet each time out of necessity and organize tontines (financial arrangements in which subscribers share a common fund with the benefit of survivorship). The woman with her hand raised in the photo is their president. Her name is Sokhna. She is 38 years old and a mother. She seeks this amount to buy grains and resources to practice truck farming. It’s a business she’s been in for more than 5 years. She has no particular expenses aside from her own personal needs. She starts her day at 7am and finishes at 1pm, then goes home to prepare the day’s meal. She hopes the loan will allow her to make use of other surfaces in order to augment her earnings and improve the living conditions of her children.

In this group: Sokhna , Aïcha , Faotu Teuw , Adja , Sya , Fafaye , Barkatou , Aissata , Souadou , Anna
