07_Kaaye Bakh Sibassor Group's story

The group was created by neighbourhood bonds in 2011 when the banc villageois was set up. This group is composed of five members, all women of the village who live together. They have strong relations and work in small trade.

Aissatou, standing to the right of the photo with her hand raised, is the representative. She is 48 years old, single, and mother of one daughter. She has been working in small trade since joining the group, getting her supplies from the regions and developing her work in the local area.

With her loan, she will buy dried fish and smoked fish to resell in her neighbourhood. Her customer base comprises her neighbours. The profits generated from her work will enable her to build up her savings and meet her needs.
