Thiat Group's story

The THIAT solidarity group consists of 13 women who were brought together by affinity, and because they are neighbors. They are very enterprising women, and rigorous workers. The group was created on the eve of the Banc Villageois inauguration.

Mrs. AÏDA S. is the head of the group. She is seen standing at the right of the photo in black trousers and a white T-shirt. She is 24 years old, married, and the mother of a dependent child.

She sells cosmetic products, which she buys in containers from Mali.

Her loan will allow her to increase her stocks and boost her profits.

Her goal is to be able to meet her personal needs and support her husband in providing for the family.

In this group: Aïda , Maty, Rokhaya, Astou, Aïda, Mame Fatou, Khady, Mariane , Ndeye Maguette, Aïssatou Diop, Diaw, Deguene, Aminata
