A loan of $4,675 helped a member purchase of fruit.

Sop Caurie Group's story

The SOP CAURIE solidarity group was created almost 5 years ago. It is made up of 25 women from the same village. Overall, they run businesses selling fruit.

Ndeye Astou D., standing fifth from the left and identified in the inset portrait, is in charge of the group. She is 40 years old, married and mother to 5 dependent children.

Like the other women in the village, she sells seasonal fruit. She runs her business well, having worked at it from a young age.

This new loan will allow her to expand her business by purchasing more fruit. Her goal is to support herself and to help cover her family’s expenses.
