09_Gpf Sope Dabakh Fanaye Group's story

This is a group of seven women that was created in August 2018. Since they live in the same village, there is a strong social cohesion between the members of the group. They have gotten together with the goal to easily access banking. Their main activity is retail sales of various products.

Madame Fatoumata is the group's representative. She is married and 58 years old. She is the mother of one girl and 4 boys between the ages of 11 and 25 years old. Her children are all in school.

Madame Fatoumata works in retail. She has a shop at home where she sells food products. With this loan under contract, she plans to increase her stock of merchandise. All the profits from her business will go to savings, as she wishes to become autonomous and finance herself.
