01_Ndiandacoumba Group's story

These 17 brave women are part of the group that was established in their village in November 2011. They go along well and are united by strong bonds of solidarity. Their main business is retail. They are very good with loans since they have successfully repaid several.

Mrs. Coumba, age 33, is the group's responsible. In the photograph, she's standing in the far right with her hand raised. She's married and the mother of seven children, including three boys. They all go to school.

Mrs. Coumba retails vegetables. She gets her supplies from market gardeners and resells at the village market. She has more than ten years of experience in this field. She also sells ice cream.

She will buy bags of potatoes, carrots, cabbages, turnips, sugar, monkey bread, etc, that she will resell for a good profit. She's not the only one to run this kind of business but she's doing fine in spite of the competition.

She will use her profits to cover the expenses of the family and the children's school expenses, as well as to increase her savings.
