Ghawakil De Tessito Group's story

The Ghawakil de Tessito group was created on the inauguration date of the "banc villageois". It is made up of 15 women who all live in the same area and all undertake commercial activities. The group is very organised and has a good communication system in place.

Aramata (standing on the far right) is the group's leader. She is 59 years old, married and the mother of 2 children. She is also responsible for 3 close relatives who have come to the area to continue their studies. She sells vegetables in her local district and has done so for several years.

Aramata will use this loan to buy vegetables from the producers, for resale. As well as using the profits from her business to cover the children´s needs, she would also like to build a more modern house.

In this group: Aisse, Maimouna, Amie, Astou, Sona, Awa, Mariama, Khady, Aramata, Maimouna, Adama, Sirato, Coumba, Fatou, Aissatou
