09_Gpf Suxaly Sunu Gokh 2 Bintou Pikine 700 Group's story

This group of five women was set up in 2016. The members of the group live in the same neighborhood and have a good relationship with one another. Their main economic activity is commerce.

Binetou is the group's representative and she is on the right of the photo with her hand raised. She is 41 years old, married and mother to three girls and one boy, aged between four and 14 years old.

This loan will enable the customer to buy millet to be made into gruel and resold from her home. She will buy a sack of millet every 15 days, as well as additional products.

Her profits will enable her to take care of her family's needs, pay her debts and make contributions to the neighborhood's "tontine" (a revolving finance system whereby each member contributes periodically an agreed amounts and this is passed on in rotation to different members), of which she is a member. She will also expand her business to transforming local cereals and packing them into bags to be resold in grocery stores.
