01_Sebithiokho 2 Group's story

This group, which is part of the Banc Villageois set up in September 2013, is made up of five brave women who live in the same neighborhood and who have good social cohesion. They all do business. They have repaid several loans when due.
Ms. Seynabou the representative is 39 years old, on the left in the photo and with her hand raised, she is married and the mother of six children, including a boy, who are all students.
Seynabou runs a small perfume and incense business, she buys wholesale and resells in her neighborhood by going door to door. She capitalizes on 3 years of experience in this sector.
She will buy perfumes and incense with this new loan and pay for transport. She has orders in her neighborhood and that constitutes the strength of her activity.
Her profits allow her to take charge of herself and ensure her children's education.

In this group: Seynabou, Seynabou, Ndéye Marie, Awa, Nogaye
