08-Nema Group's story

This group, created in May 2009, hosts these 8 women who live in the same neighborhood. They are dynamic and share good relations. They are active in retail commerce to have a certain financial autonomy. Madame Khadidiatou, aged 30, represents the group alone because of the Coronavirus pandemic. She is married and the mother of three children. She has two others in her care. With her new loan, she plans to stock her boutique with food products. She also sells cosmetics. Once the profits are realized, she is going to strengthen her business.

In this group: Mariama, Khadidiatou, Nene Galle, Amy, Maimouna, Sira, Dineba, Fatoumata
