Takky Ligueye Mbodiene Group's story

TAKKU LIGUEYE is a women’s group of 10 members. They all live in the same village and get together whenever necessary. The group’s president is Fatou, whose hand is raised in the photo. A very brave woman, she is a leader for her colleagues in the development of their community. Fatou is married with two children. She is responsible for her family’s day-to-day expenses and her children’s tuition fees. To that end, she runs a commercial activity selling cereals. She works from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M., and she has over 3 years of experience doing this. Fatou is seeking this loan to stock up on millet, maize, groundnuts and beans to sell. Her goals for the future are to hold a larger share of the market and to someday become self-sufficient with the help of the MFI.

In this group: Fatou , Asta , Fabaye, Fabinta , Binetou, Rokhaya, Awa , Fama , Fatma, Aïda
