A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy seeds and fertilizers for her farming business.

Gpf Keur Safadi 3 Group's story

The "Keur Safadi 3" group consists of two women who are actively involved in agriculture. Diama, the tallest woman in the photo, grows cabbage, carrots and eggplants. She owns a piece of land behind the house where she lives, and she will use her loan to buy seeds and fertilizers. The profits from the sale of her garden vegetables will be used to help her husband cover the day-to-day expenses of the household. In addition to her farming activity, Diama would also like to sell cosmetic products. She would actually give this activity to her daughter who would run it. This will allow her to maximize her profits and to improve her family's food conditions.

In this group: Diama, Awa
