Takku Liguey Group's story

Takku Liguey Group is made up of ten women who live together in the same neighborhood. Their businesses are very similar.

The group's president, named Fatou, is 41 years old. She's the woman raising her hand in the photograph. She's a cultivator and she helps her husband cover daily expenses and her children's school expenses.

She's seeking a loan of XOF 100'000 to buy seeds and fertilizers for her farming business. She leaves her home at 8 in the morning, and comes back at 8 in the evening.

In the future, she would like to have a booth in the market, where she could sell her crops. Thus, she will be able to increase her income, improve the standard of living of her family, and put some money away.

In this group: Fatou Kiné, Khadidiatou , Marième , Aida , Amsatou , Anna , Khady, Marième , Awa , Ndèye Yacine
