03_Kayito Baila Group's story

This group is made up of five women who have a strong relationship and live in the same locality. They seized the opportunity to join this women's group when it was created in December 2019. They are mainly involved in the trade of various products.

Aramata, who is in the picture, is the group's leader. She is married, 43 years old and mother of seven children including four girls. She has been selling vegetables for several years.

With this loan, she plans to purchase more products that she will sell at the local market. She will use the profits to help her husband with daily expenses as well as school and medical expenses for the children.

In order to comply with social distancing rules, Aramata is the only person in the picture.

In this group: Fatoumata, Seynabou, Rokhya, Ramatoulaye, Aramata
