Book Jom Group's story

The solidarity group Book Jom was created a year and half ago. It is made up of 25 women who come from the same town. They formed the group through neighbourhood and social connections. Their main activity involves running small businesses. The group belongs to the Village Loan Group of Thieo Adi.

Ms. Jeanne D., standing all the way on the right in the photo with the raised hand, is responsible for the group. She is married and has two children. She also has two other children in her care, who were entrusted to her by their parents.

She has developed a small business selling fabric. Her new loan will allow her to strengthen her business by raising her ability to buy supplies.

With the profits that she draws from her business, she pays for a review course for her son, who is preparing for an exam. She also contributes to paying for certain household expenses.

In this group: Marie Coumba, Jeanne, Germaine, Odette, Khady, Mame Khady, Ramtoulaye, Mame Fatou, Awa, Awa, Awa, Charlotte, Amy, Diagne, Marie Paul, Therese Vital, Mariama, Seynabou, Rokaya, Anna, Oumy, Maimouna, Alice, Mame, Charlotte
