01_Gpf Sope Serigne Makhtar Group's story

These 15 brave and dynamic women are part of a group that was created in October 2013. They support each other and successfully reimbursed two loans. They mainly work in trade.

Faka, the group representative, is standing on the right of the picture with her hand raised. She is 46 years old, married and has nine children, including three sons, who all go to school. Faka sells fresh fish and gets her supply at the fishing quays in three cities. She resells in wholesale and retail in her neighbourhood and in the local market. She has a good experience with over ten years in this sector.

Faka is going to buy crates of fresh fish to resell in the hopes of good profits. She has a good customer base as she is the only one selling fresh fish in her neighbourhood, so she easily sells her stock.

The profits made will allow her to pay for her children's school fees, to grow her business and to build a house.
