08-Tessito Group's story

This group was created in June 2009. It is made up of 17 women who live in the same neighborhood who share good relationships. They are unified and help each other so their businesses run smoothly.

Ms. Oumy, aged 51, represents the group out of compliance with COVID-19 safety measures. She is married and the mother of five children. She has three other children in her care. Her new loan will be used to buy mangoes to resell. She will also buy monkey bread and bissab to make ice cream and sell.

With her profits Ms. Oumy plans to make bricks to build a house.
