03_Gpf Diamalaye Darsalam Cherif Group's story

This group is composed of 5 women who maintain strong relationships and who live in the same locality. They seized the opportunity to join the women's group at its creation at the beginning of October 2020. They mainly work selling various types of items.

Madam Ametou, far-right in the photo with her hand raised, is the group representative. She is married, 32 years old, and mother to a daughter and a son. For many years she has sold shoes, fabric, school supplies, and local products for consumption.

With this loan, she envisions increasing the supply that she will sell in her community.

The profits will be used to help her husband cover day-to-day expenses, but also for the education and health of her children.

In this group: Ametou Rahime, Kadessa, Oumou, Aissatou, Magboula
