02_Sikilo Group's story

Launched in January 1997, this group is composed of women who share a spirit of solidarity and are very energetic. They work mainly as vendors and livestock farmers. Famout on the photo is the group representative. She is 43 years old, married and has seven children, including five daugthers. She works as a vendor. This is a business she masters well thanks to her long experience.

Fatoumata goes to a popular weekly market in her village to buy her goods in order to resell them later. She plans to buy pails of peanut paste and jugs of palm oil wholesale, in order to retail them later at a good profit margin. Fatoumata plans to use the revenues from her business to bolster her savings in the bank villageois.
