02_Smoussa Group's story

Since it was created in December 2015, this group has been made up of energetic women with solidarity, who mainly work in commerce and raising animals.

Bailo is in the photo. She is 49 years old and married. She is the mother of 5 children, 3 of which are girls. She is the group representative. She is alone in the photo to respect social distancing measures against Covid-19.

She works in commerce and has a large amount of experience in this field. She goes to the weekly local market to buy products and resell them in her neighborhood.

She plans to buy food products with her new loan (cans of palm oil, peanut paste, and vegetables...) by wholesale. Then she will resell them individually in her neighborhood.

The earnings will allow her to strengthen her savings in the banc villageois, but also to help her husband with the daily expenses.
