02_Médina Chérif Zone Lycée Group's story

The goup was created in July 2012 and is made up of dynamic women who share strong, neighborly bonds. Hairstyling and selling beauty products (hair extensions, straightening gel) is the main work of the group.

Standing in the photo with her hand raised is Hady, who is the group's representative. She is 41 years old, divorced, and a mother of a 24-year-old daughter. With her loan, she bought beauty products (hair extensions and straightening gel) to use with her customers. She buys her stock at the central market and practices her business from her home.

She has loyal customers and several years' experience with this type of work.

The profits that she makes will allow her to pay the interest on her loan, save, and cover personal costs as well as those of her daughter, who is at university (food, health, clothing, and education).
