02_Smoussa Group's story

Since 2015 this group made up of interdependent women who live in the same neighbourhood have been mainly active in small business.
Haha who appears in the photo is 48 years old. She is married and the mother of eight which includes four girls. She is the representative of the group and has been mainly active in sales for years. She is very good at this line of work.
With this loan, she intends to buy basins of fresh fish wholesale at the fishing quays of neighbouring villages which she will resell at retail price in her area.
With the profits, she foresees supplementing her savings at the banc villageois and to improve the family's living conditions by helping her husband take care of the day to day expenses.
