A loan of $2,600 helped a member to buy 2 sheep.


Ndiague's Group's story

This group of women are part of the "banc villageois" which was created on the 24th of December, 2010. This "banc" groups together members who lives in the same village and surrounding villages.

Adji, standing on the right of the picture and raising her hand, is 30 years old. She is married and the mother of 3 children, one of whom is a girl. She will use this loan to start her sheep-fattening business and will buy 2 sheep for 25 000 francs apiece. She will also buy feed for her livestock and will spend money on vaccines to ensure their health. After a few months of fattening, she will be able to resell each sheep for 45 000 francs, maybe 50 000 francs. Part of the profits will be used to build her savings at the "banc villageois" and part will be reinvested in her livestock-fattening business.
