Th_Lissoune Group's story

This group of six women make up a part of a banc villageois that was established in May 2009. It is composed of brave women, who get along very well.

Lissoune, who is 55 years old and married, is a mother of five children, including one son. Two of the children go to school.

Lissoune works selling jewelry, ladies' dresses, and men's clothing. She has at least 15 years' experience doing this, and her business is conducted mostly at home or at the market. In addition to this business, she also runs a hen house.

Lissoune sells on credit her stock to customers, which are stores at the market. At the end of each week, she makes the rounds to collect her earnings. Her profits are used mostly to strengthen her business, but she also is able to take care of her and her family's needs.
