Sope Galass Group's story

The group called Sope Galass is a sub-group of the Network Ndiol. It is made up of 10 persons who have the same business, namely growing rice and doing market gardening. They are on their third loan and their president is Madame Oumou. She can be seen in the photo raising her hand. She is 46 years old, married and the mother of a family who has 10 years of experience in this business.

She is asking for a loan to buy seeds and agricultural inputs to do market gardening and grow rice along the river, where it is very productive. She begins her day at 7 am and goes home at 4 pm. In future, she hopes to expand her production by enlarging her farmed areas and filling her orders.

In this group: Oumou, Sokhna, Alima, Ardo, Diary, Mame, Coumba, Aminatou, Fanta, Caty
