Sop Serigne Babacar Sy Group's story

The solidarity group Sop Serigne Babacar Sy was created nearly 5 years ago. It is made up of 22 women who all come from the same neighborhood. Their predominant business is the sale of seasonal fruits. The group is a member of the Village Bank of Kignabour 2. Madame Aby D., standing second to the right of the photo, in a white scarf and pictured in the inset, is the leader of the group. She is 60 years old. She is a widow and the mother of 6 children. She runs a small business selling fresh fish and vegetables. Her talent in this business has allowed her to run it successfully for more than 10 years. Her new loan will allow her to develop her small business in order to increase her financial revenues. The profits she makes will allow her to buy food for her children and grandchildren.
