The SOPE CHEIKH SADBOU AÏDARA cooperative group is made up of 12 women, formed on 12/14/2008 out of the management committee of the Banc Villageois which supports it (TOUB. SERAS1). The members are all married and mothers of at least three children, and range from 30 to 60 years old. They live in the same neighborhood and have worked together for several years. The group’s activities are fattening of livestock and smallscale trade. This new loan will allow them to strengthen their business activities.
