01_Keur Magor Group's story

This group is made up of 15 brave women and was created in January 2016. They live in the same village and share good relations based on confidence and solidarity. They all work in different income generating activities.

Mrs. Gnima is the leader of the group. She is standing on the right with her hand raised. She is 48 and is married with eight children, four girls and four boys who all attend school.

Mrs. Gnima runs a grocery. She buys her stock at a weekly market in the south of the country and resells in her district and from her home. She has about a year's experience. She will buy 40 litres of palm oil, three buckets of 15 kg of peanut paste, dried fish and various seafood. Her business is doing well, she sells for credit and she recuperates her money at the end of each month. She uses her profits to help her husband cover the family expenses (food, clothing, health....).
