04_Dieynaba Group's story

Since its creation in May 2014, this group has been composed of energetic women with solidarity living in the same town and in nearby villages. They are actively mainly in commerce and in raising livestock. They keep up good relationships.

DIEYNABA, standing at the right in the photo with a hand raised, is the group's representative. She is 55, married, and the mother of three children, including two sons. For years, she has been active in commerce and has much experience in the sector.

The loan she just received will enable her to purchase baskets of smoked fish and dried fish, some grains, and sacks of onions and chili peppers in bulk that she will sell retail.

With the profits, she envisions saving money and using some of it to meet family needs.

In this group: Dieynaba, Fatou , Banel
