Gie Yassoto Gossoto Group's story

Madame Bountoun, aged 46, is the leader of Gie Yassoto Gossoto, which means "you receive, I receive" in the Mandigue langauge. Married, she lives with her four children and her husband, who is involved in masonry, and they both work together support the family's needs.

Madame Bountoun is active in sheep raising, like all other members of the group. She decided with her team to form a group to look for financing in order to be able to develop their business. She stocks up at the weekly market in their community, and she resells her items there after several months of fattening.

However, to be financially self-sufficient, they requested to be financed by a financial institution to support their current level of performance. The profits obtained from the sale of the items will serve to support the family's needs, most particularly financing the children's studies, their health, food, etc. The difficulties that these women sometimes face in their business are poor sales and the death of some items due to the lack of means to pay for a veterinarian's services.
