Fass Diom Group's story

The Fass Diom solidarity group was created nine years ago. It is composed of six women who live in the same neighborhood and are nearly of the same generation. They share a common goal, which is supporting their husbands with family expenses.

Mrs Aminata S., standing right in the picture, chairs the group. She is 53 years old, married and the mother of eight children. She runs a small store, where she sells bananas. She buys them wholesale and then retails them in her neighborhood. Her objective is to provide for her family and help her husband to pay the various household expenses.

In this group: Maïmouna, Aissatou , Diarietou, Aminata, Madeleine, Sophie*
