They sell fresh fish and prepared foods and buy and sell diverse products. The group joined Soro Yiriwaso's loan program five years ago. They are on their eighth group loan, having fully repaid the other seven.

She plans to use her loan to buy ten bags of wheat flour, five 20-liter cans of oil, and 25,000 FCFA's worth of condiments for the preparation of her fritters.

She hopes to make a monthly profit of 49,000 FCFA which will be used to repay the loan and meet family needs.
