A loan helped to buy fresh fish to resell.

01_Lelo Group's story

These women live in the same village and are members of the group that's existed since February 2000. They maintain good relationships and are in solidarity. Retail is their primary business.

Madame Maïmouna, 54 years old, on the right of the photo, is the representative. She is married and the mother of two boys.

Madame Maïmouna sells fresh fish which she buys from fishermen and resells in pieces and in bulk at the village market.

With her loan, she is going to buy cases of fish which she will resell with a profit margin. She manages to easily sell her products despite competition.

The earned profits will allow her to take care of herself, reinforce her business, and increase her savings.
