06_Gpf Sop Serigne Babacar Sy Gueoul Group's story

This group is comprised of six women who share strong bonds of solidarity and self-help. They live in the same village and took advantage of the opportunity to join a group of women since their establishment in the locality in 2017. They have small trade as their principle business.

Mrs. Sokhna, (standing at the extreme right of the photo with her hand raised), is the representative of the group. She is 53-years-old. She is married and the mother of two children, of which her daughter is the oldest. She does small trade in vegetables. She has experience in this business, having practiced it for several years.

With this credit she envisions purchasing bags of cabbage, carrots, eggplant, and cassava in the daily markets to re-sell them retail in her village.

The profits will permit her to make her payments, revive her business, and help her spouse take care of family expenses.
