05-Sow Tacku Group's story

This group of women has been together since November 2012. They live in the same area and enjoy strong bonds of kinship and solidarity. Their main activity is small commerce.

Sow is the group representative. She is 45 years old, married, and the mother of five children, one of whom is a girl. She runs a stall at the central market in her area where she sells rolls of fabric and outfits for men and women. She is also active in the restaurant business. With this loan, she will buy a dozen pairs of pants, a dozen Lacoste items, 1 bag of onions, 20 liters of oil, and a bag of potatoes.

The profits from these sales will enable Sow to strengthen her business and cover her family's needs.

In this group: Aida, Sow, Rouguiyatou
