02_Sadio Group's story

This group has been created in July 2019 and is composed of supportive women who all live in the same locality and who mainly have retail businesses.

Sadio, in the photo, is a 65-year-old widow and a mother of five children including a boy. She is the representative of the group and has been working in retail for several years. She has extensive experience in the sector. She buys products wholesale at the weekly local markets and resells them in her village.

With this loan, Sadio intends to buy in bulk, peanut paste, palm oil and dried fish which she will then resell at competitive prices. With the profits, she plans to build up her savings and to help her children and grandchildren support the family, especially since she is a widow.
