Assy's Group's story
This group of women was established in 2004. These courageous women are still developing and each work in sales. Their activities include sales of doughnuts, sales of peanuts, fruit and vegetables, palm oil, tea, etc. There is a solidarity amongst the women because they share the same ethnicity, the same culture and several of them are parents. The representative of the group, Fatoumata, is married with three children. She sells snacks (doughnuts, sweets, etc). Part of the profits taken from her business is used to school her children. The rest is reinvested for developing the business. Due to Covid-19 and the hygiene restrictions, we couldn't take a photograph of the group.
