01_Diakhou Group's story

This group of ten women was created in January 2013. The women live in the same neighborhood and keep up good social ties, and they paid back their first loan successfully. Their main work is in commerce.

Ms. Diakhou, the group's representative, is 44 years old and appears in the photo dressed in red. A widow, she is the mother of five children, including a girl; they are all attending school. Ms. Diakhou has been active with a small-scale business involving fabrics and perfumes. She makes her purchases in the capital and in certain cities to resell the merchandise at the factory in her town. She has over fifteen years of good experience in this sector of commerce.

Her loan will be used to purchase rolls of different fabrics and dozens of perfumes that she plans to resell at a good profit. She has a loyal customer base and does well in the end.

The earnings are for covering family expenses (food, clothing, education, …) and also for completing the construction of her house.
