Kd_Gadapara Group's story

This group was created in January 1998 and is made up of dynamic women united in solidarity and linked either by kin or neighbours. Standing on the right of the photo with her hand raised is Khady: the group's representative. She is 56 years old, divorced and has four children, three of whom are girls.

With this loan she is going to buy shoes, powdered milk, beans and various ingredients for preparing breakfast. She gets her supplies from the central market in Kolda and from Touba for the shoes, which she then sells retail in her local area. She has a loyal customer base and has several years' experience in this trade.

Profits from the activity will enable her to provide for her family's food, health and education needs.
