04_Oumy Group's story

This group was formed in November 2009 uniting dynamic and very supportive women entrepreneurs who make a living mainly in commerce and raising animals.

OUMY standing on the right in the photo with her hand raised is 58 years old. She is a widow and mother of three children, two of them girls. She is the group representative. She has been earning her living in commerce for years and has a lot of experience in this field. She goes to a neighbouring country to buy her merchandise.

She plans on buying bags of peanuts that she will make into peanut butter and then sell in the capital. She will also buy fabric that she will also resell at the same time.

With her earnings she plans to build rooms on the family house which she will rent out so she obtains much greater revenue.
