Apec-Al Ouma Tivaouane Diacksao Groupe 2's story

The APEC sub-group Al Ouma Tivaouane Diacksao, Group 2, consists of fifteen women who all live in the same locality. For a long time now, they have been selling various items such as fabrics, vegetables, bread, thiakry, oranges, etc. The group president is Mrs. Fatoumata D.. She sells donuts in front of a school located close to her home. Outside of school hours, she is also a street vendor, going around town to sell toys and perfumes. She chose her activity out of love, but also to earn income and provide for her personal needs. She has children to raise and support.

The group members joined the Dalifort branch in March 2011. They are seeking a loan of 1,000,000 FCFA to purchase fabrics, perfumes, vegetables and seasonal products intended to diversify and develop their businesses. An increase in profits will allow them to better contribute to the well-being of their respective families. Their goal is to help their husbands in managing the daily expenditures of their households.

In this group: Fatoumata, Fatoumata, Aissata, Aissatou , Awa, Houleymatou, Aissata, Dague, Dioukha, Mbayang, Fatoumata, Marie, Fatou, Diamy, Seynabou
