09_Gpf Rafeit Djiko 1 Bokhol Group's story

This group of ten members was created in 2019. The goal of its creation was to allow the members to develop some economic activities and to have access to banking. The members live in the same area. They know each other thanks to being long-time neighbours and the blood relations among certain of them. They are a very solid group.

Market gardening is the principal activity of the members of the group. Hawa, who is found at the left of the photo with a raised hand, is the representative of the group. She is sixty-seven years old. She is married and the mother of four boys.

With this loan the client plans to cultivate onions, tomatoes and rice. She will buy some seeds, some fertilizer, some diesel and thus ensure all the things necessary for the good execution of her business. With the profits realized, Hawa wants to meet the her personal needs and invest in a livestock fattening business.

In this group: Hawa Aly, Oumou Oumar, Kadiata Aliou Samba, Maye, Peinda , Gaissiry, Dado, Astou Mafal, Fatima Siley, Diary Aliou
