Sokhna's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy baskets of fresh fish to process and sell.

Sokhna's Group's story

This group was formed in 2010 and was a part of the first cycle of banc villageoises. It is comprised of women from the same area who are united by neighbourly good relations. Madam Sokhna is their representative. She is a 60-year-old widow and mother of 6 children, 3 boys and 3 older girls. She has been active in the business of possessed fish for almost 30 years and has lots of experience in this sector.

Her new loan of 500 000 francs CFA will allow Madam Sokhna to buy baskets of fresh fish to transform for resale at the market in her locality. The profits obtained from her business allow Madam Sokhna to take charge of her personal needs and to pay her dues to the banc villageois.
