02_Batagnel Group's story

Since its creation in August 2011, this group has been composed of very dynamic and united women who are primarily active in business.

Oumou, in the the photo, is the representative of the group. She is 39 years old and the married mother of 5 children, of whom 3 are girls. She has been active in business for years and has a lot of experience in this area. She buys her products in the central market of her community.

With this new loan, she plans on getting foodstuffs (sacks of sugar, cartons of tea and candy, and sacks of sorrel) in bulk which she will then resell for retail at her place where she has a stall. The rest of the loan will be used for her business in fruit juice and ice cream which she keeps in a refrigerator at her location.

With this realized profit, she plans to add to her capital and to also help her husband to take care of the needs of her family.
