01_Randoulene Sud Group's story

This group is made up of five hardworking women and is part of a "banc villageois" established in the area in May 2009. They all live in the same neighbourhood and enjoy very good social and professional relations. They are used to the loan process and have already repaid over ten loans in a timely manner. Their main activity is retail.

Sokhna, standing on the right of the photo and raising her hand, is the group representative. She is 52 years old, married, and the mother of 3 children, one of whom is a boy.

Sokhna sells fabric. She buys it wholesale from the big merchants and resells it to her retail customers in different parts of town. She has been in this line of work for over 15 years. She also sells breakfasts.

She will use her loan to buy rolls of fabric to strengthen her business. She sells her merchandise without difficulty because it's good quality.

Her profits enable her to build her savings, to help her parents, and to support her children.

In this group: Madjiguène, Sokhna, Aminata, Lobé, Aminata
