Th_Aïda Group's story

This group has existed since May 2009. It consists of women from the same neighborhood, unified by good bonds of neighborliness. They have good social relationships with each other. The main occupation is commerce.

Fifty-five-year-old Aïda is the representative, on the right of the photo, raising her hand. She is married and the mother of six children, two of whom are girls. All of them go to school.

Aïda works as a seller of grocery products, especially processed fish and onions. She stocks up in the weekly markets so she can resell in her neighborhood. She has more than 15 years of good experience.

With her loan she counts on buying 10 baskets of smoked fish, 15 baskets of dried fish, 20 sacks of onions, and 2 cases of fresh fish, which she will resell in hopes of good gains. She manages to sell her products without difficulty.
The profits will let her build up her business, increase her savings, and help her husband with taking care of the family.

In this group: Aïda, Khady, Woré, Khady, Sokhna, Assiétou
