09_Gpf Medina Gnith Group's story

This group of five members was created in 2018. The members live in the same locality and they wanted to work together as they share the same economic activities. Thus, they created this group with the intention of having better access to the banks. The members all have commerce as their main economic principal. Mrs. Mbery is the leader of this group. She is the lady with her hand raised in the photo. She is 70, a widow and she has four daughters and two sons. She has been selling vegetables for several years. Once a week, she goes to the weekly market in her locality. She buys almost all vegetables available according to the season (carrots, cabbage, aubergines, tomatoes...). She then sells all this produce to her clients from home. This client wants to save up part of her profits and reinvest the remainder in her commerce.
