10 Nafissatou Group's story

This group of 11 members was created in July 2013. It groups together women from the same area who are united by good neighbourly relations.

Nafissatou, the group leader, is 56 years old, married, and the mother of 7 adult children.

Nafissatou is a very dynamic woman who is involved in the development of her community and plays a role in the social regulation of her group. She is standing on the far left in the picture, raising her hand.

Nafissatou has been selling lemon juice for almost 20 years and has good experience in this line of work. She will use her new loan to buy bags of lemons which she will press into juice and sell by the liter in her district.

The profits she earns allow her to contribute towards her children's educational expenses and to provide for herself.
