Mbokatoor Group's story
This is a group loan request being submitted by the assocation Mbookator, represented by Ms. Bineta D.. Palmarin, located in the Fatick region in the middle of Senegal, is a fishing village that, after Joal, is one of the greatest producers of fish in the region of La Petite Côte. The main work of the women of the town is still the processing and drying of fish and other seafood. Bineta and her associates plan to take advantage of this natural resource by buying large quantities of fresh, natural products (fish, oysters, shrimp, mussels, salt) and to process them in order to respond to the call of the people living in Palmarin, in surrounding villages, and even in Dakar needing ocean-harvested goods.
