Dal alene al jam

Dal alene al jam

After lunch we were given a warm welcome, "Dal alene al jam," by Sambou Coly, Oikocredit's Country Manager in Senegal and then we all introduced ourselves.

Challenges in Senegal

To better understand the partners we'll be visiting, Mariam Dao, regional representative of West Africa, explained more about the region and Sambou gave us examples of partners and the challenges in Senegal.

Aïda Gueye, Social Performance Coordinator for West Africa, described what Oikocredit has accomplished in the area regarding social performance. During these presentations I think it became clear to everyone how interesting this region is and how much is being done there by Oikocredit.

Growth potential

Mariam explained that "despite the many challenges in West-Africa, the region has enormous growth potential.” From the presentations given, that seemed very clear to everyone.

Tomorrow we will split into two groups and the actual tour through the country will start. I’m really looking forward to visiting our partners and seeing what we do first-hand.
