Sope Aladj Barra Group's story

The business group SOPE ALADJ BARRA was created on June 27 2007, the day of the inauguration of the Village Bank of SINOU KHALY that houses it. It consists of 19 women who are all from the same village. They are grouped by affinity and neighborhood.

Mrs. DABA S., in the middle of the group wearing the multicolored outfit, with her medallion placed below, is the manager of the group. She is 33 years old, married, and mother of 3 children.

She is in the clothing business. In the village, she sells women’s dresses and clothing for infants and children. She has been in this business for more than three years.

Her new loan will enable her to expand her business and increase her level of merchandise by buying more fabric for making dresses and clothing for babies and children.

With the profits generated by her business, she manages to buy rice and frequently pay her children’s medical expenses.
