01_Sopelindeye Group's story

This ‘banc villageois’ set up in the area in September 2008 is made up of these six women who live in the same village. They share good relationships both socially and professionally and have repaid several loans successfully. Their main activity is trading.

Ndéye Rokhaya, 60 years old, is the representative on the left of the photo raising her hand. She is married and the mother of eight children – four girls and four boys of whom three are still studying. She has been able to increase her savings in order to obtain a big loan to develop her activity.
Ndéye Rokhaya sells broth and couscous. She stocks up in the weekly markets with cereals and wood for her production which she resells retail in her neighborhood from her home. She has 8 years of experience.

With her loan she will buy 20 bags of millet, 10 bags of corn, and 5 barrels of firewood to cook over. She resells with a profit margin and is doing well despite the strong competition.

Her profits will allow her to support certain family expenses, to strengthen her savings and to support her children with their schooling.
