02_Sikilo Group's story

Since its creation, this group is composed of very connected and energetic women who run businesses. Almost all of them live in the same neighborhood.

MAYO, in the photo, is a 50-year-old single mother of three, one of whom is a girl. She is the group representative. She has been in commerce for years and has good experience. She buys her products at wholesale and sells it at retail. With her new loan, she plans to buy fabrics and small women’s purses at wholesale and then sell them at retail. The profits will be put into her savings at the banc villageois and to improve her family’s living conditions, notably paying for her children’s education.
