Sope Mame Diarra Group's story

The solidarity group Sope Mame Diarra was created on December 30 2009. It is made up of 31 women, all married. They have an average age of 45, and are the mothers of at least 3 children. They all come from the same village and have come together as friends and neighbors.

With the goal of increasing their purchasing power, the women decided to join the Caurie Micro Finance institution. This is their second time working with Caurie and all their previous loans have been properly repaid.

Bado F., standing, edge of photo, arms crossed, is the group's leader. She is 56 years old, and sells fruits in season. She obtains her supplies in Louga and sells at retail in her village. This new loan will allow her to regularly increase her stock of fruits. She contributes to the improvement of her family's living conditions and at the same time, increases her level of savings.

In this group: Bado, Ndoumbe, Ndack, Khady, Fatou, Soda, Aba, Ndeye, Sokhna, Sokhna, Diama*, Fatou Kine, Wouly, Fatou, Fatou Bintou, Mane, Mariama, Soda, Fama, Bingue*, Marame, Absa, Sokhna, Khady, Kani, Sarakh, Mbengue, Coumba Seye, Daba, Khoudia, Ndeye Thiam
