Bokk Jom Group's story

The Bokk Jom solidarity group was created on December 4, 2007. It is made up of 17 women who all live in the same neighborhood. They formed their group through proximity and affinity. The group is a member of the SanthiaB. Sud Banc Villageois. Ms. Aminata F. (standing farthest to the right of the photo, dressed in blue and white) is the leader of the group. She is 57 years old. She is married and the mother of 9 children. She runs a small shop selling cloths and men's clothing. As a secondary activity, she sells incense. She sells either for cash or credit, with payments made at the end of each month. She has 4 years of experience in this domain of business. Her new loan will allow her to succeed in her cloth and incense business. Her principal objective is to pay for her 17-year-old daughter's medical bills. She has been educated, but has been temporarily unable to go to school anymore for health reasons.
