Saf Group's story

The solidarity group SAF was created on August 27, 2009. The group is composed of seven women who are all from the same neighborhood. Their businesses are diverse: selling cloth, selling cosmetics, selling perfume, etc. The group is part of the Banc Villageois of MAMADOU LAMINE G.. Ms. FATOU F. N. (standing at the right in the photo) is the group’s leader. She is 24 years old, married, and the mother of two children. She also has a young girl in her care. Her business involves commerce in cloth. With her first loan from CAURIE-MF, she is going to develop her business further, so as to grow her profits. Her goal is to support her family and her husband in covering the costs of schooling and health care for the children. She also plans on bolstering her savings account at the Banc Villageois.

In this group: Fatou Fall, Hama, Ndoumbe, Awa, Lala, Fatou Fall, Binta
