03_Wakily Ebinako Group's story

This group is composed of five women keeping up strong ties and living in the same town. The women jumped at the chance to join a women’s group set up in March 2021. They are actively mainly in the commerce of selling general goods.

Ms. Khady, who appears in the photo, is the group's representative. She is married, 42 years old, and the mother of five children, including two daughters. She has been doing commerce in palm oil and lemon juice for several years.

With this loan, she envisions adding to her supplies that she is going to sell in town and in Dakar. The earnings will be used to help out her husband in covering day-to-day expenses, as well as the costs of education and healthcare for the children.

In this group: Khady, Mariama, Khady, Fatou, Souna
