Diongama Group's story

The Diongama group was created on November 15, 2006. It is made up of nine women who live in the same neighborhood. They all operate small sales businesses.

Madame Tida (standing third from the left) is the leader of the group. Forty-one years old, she is divorced and the mother of two children. She sells fabric at the market. She is very experienced in this type of work since she's been doing it for many years.

With this new loan, she plans to increase her stock of fabrics in order to make more profits. Her goal is to take care of her children's expenses by increasing her savings.

In this group: Aminata, Tida, Maïmouna, Marang, Binta, Penda, Fatou, Rouguyatou, Mahawa
