Dl_Rokhaya Group's story

This group was created in March 2010, bringing together united and extremely dynamic women working prinicipally in trade, animal fattening and agriculture.

Rokhaya, standing on the right-hand side of the photo with her hand raised, is the group's representative. She is 42 years old and is married with nine children, seven of whom are girls. She works in vegetable sales and has a wealth of experience in this sector.

With her loan she plans on buying sacks of vegetables (cassava, cabbages, aubergines and carrots) wholesale, which she will then sell on retail in her local area.

With the profits she earns, she plans to buy food for her children, as well as building more bedrooms in her house to improve her family's living conditions.
