02_Doumassou Plateau Group's story

This group, created in December 2012, is made up of dynamic, supportive women with good neighborly relations. Small business is the main activity of the group.

Madiène, standing in the picture with the raised hand, is the representative of the group. She is 43 years old, divorced and mother of three children, one of whom is a girl who is 25 years old.

With the loan received, she bought women's handbags, jewelry, bags of monkey bread and sorrel to make juice to resell. She restocks in surrounding villages or weekly markets for the juice and at the capital for the bags and jewelry sets.

She resells them in her neighborhood in front of schools and stadiums or in other areas of the city. She has a loyal clientele and capitalizes on several years of experience in the field.

With the profits, she will strengthen her savings and invest in cement, iron and sand for construction on her land.

In this group: Madiene , Jeanne Chantale, Fatou, Habibatou Penda, Seynabou, Sia, Yaye Mama, Diattou, Mouskeba, Bintou, Mariama Alpha, Gnagna, Maielli, Dalanda
