Ndeye Faly's Group's story

This group is part of the local banc villageois, which was founded on September 28, 2012. It is comprised of 25 women who live in and around the village. Some of them live in a small village located three kilometers from their meeting spot. The group’s primary activities are agriculture, livestock farming, and small business.

Madame Ndéye Faly, the representative, is 52 years old. She is married and the mother of seven children, two of whom are married. She has six grandchildren, four boys and two girls. She works in sheep farming and also has a small business where she sells dried fish and Omo brand soap. She has 13 years of experience in these activities. She is pictured at right with her hand raised.

With her loan, she would like to buy a sheep for 40,000 F, dried fish for 7,000 F, and a bag of Omo soap for 8,000 F. She is the only one in the village to sell Omo in any significant quantity. She sells out of her home and in the village market where she has many clients.

With the profits earned from her businesses, she will buy two small sheep to increase her flock. She will also share in the family expenses (food and healthcare for the children) and take care of her own needs.
