Emilie's Group's story

This group of eight women is part of the "banc villageois" established in May 2007. They are mainly involved in selling various products. Rokhaya, at right in the photo, raising her hand, is the group's representative. She is 33 years old, divorced and the mother of two children, including one girl.

Rokhaya has been developing this business for several years. She plans to use her new loan to buy 60 pairs of shoes, 25 handbags, 15 to 20 ready-to-wear outfits and a large number of cosmetics items to resell at her home. She will use the income to pay for her children's school fees and healthcare, her own needs, and to increase her savings.
