Keur Bakar Group's story

This group is composed of nine women who lives in the same village. They all work in commerce and have good social cohesion. Astou is the group's representative. She is a married mother of a 5-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl, both in school. Astou does commerce in fruit & vegetables and has four years of experience. She goes around to all the weekly market in surrounding towns to sell her merchandise. With her loan, she intends to purchase 80 baskets of mangoes at 240,000 francs. She finds it's not hard to sell her merchandise because she has a good customer base. With the profits, she helps her husband to cover household expenses and the children's schooling costs.
