08-Bemet Diattacounda Group's story

This group was created in December 2001. It is made up of 35 women living in the same village. They are dynamic and supportive. They also share good relationships. They do retail trade to achieve financial autonomy.

Mrs. Assanatou, 60 years old, represents the group alone in order to respect the barrier measures against Covid-19. She is a widow and mother of 09 children.

With her new loan, she plans to buy bags of sugar and a carton of tea to resell.

The profits made will be used to take care of her needs as she is a widow.
