03_Gpf Bokk Diom Kafountine Group's story

This group is comprised of 9 women who share strong relations and live in the same area. They seized the opportunity to join the women's group at its implementation at the beginning of October 2020. They all are primarily involved in selling diverse products.

Madame Isatou, who is on the far right of the photo with her hand raised, is the group representative. She is married, 27 years old, and the mother of 3 children, 2 of whom are girls. She has been selling clothes, sheets, and shoes for several years.

With this loan, she plans to increase the quantity of her stock, which she will sell at the market in her area. The profits will allow her to help her husband take care of the daily expenses but also the education and health of her children.

In this group: Mariama, Oulimata, Sanou, Lalya, Isatou, Binta, Soukeye, Arabietou, Aissatou
