01_Gpf Abattoirs Group's story

This group, made up of five women, has existed since January 2016. They are friends and neighbors who live in a good social harmony. They have long progressed together running different businesses, mainly in commerce. This is their first loan with the institution. Mrs. Ndéye Sokhna is the representative. She is 63, sitting to the right with her hand raised. She is a married mother of five, one of whom is a girl, and the youngest of whom is 21. They all attend school. She is also a grandmother of a young 5-year-old girl. She is the group president. Ndéye Sokhna runs a business selling diverse products (fabrics, chairs, dishes, and others). She is progressing in the city markets. She has more than 30 years of experience in this sector. With her new loan, she plans to buy 90 meters of Getzner damask, which she will sell for credit, asking for an advance and collecting the balance at the end of the month. She is not the only one running this business, but she is getting by. Her profits help to meet her needs, strengthen her business, and help her children who do not yet work.
