Sop Sa Serigne Group's story

The solidarity group Sop Sa Serigne of the Banc Villageois of Ndiongué is comprised of fourteen women who are from the same village; they are religious about their work in small-scale commerce and in the processing of peanut oil.

Ngaya is 41 years old, married, and the mother of two children. She is the group’s official. She has a small business for producing oil. She makes her purchases at the weekly markets and sells in the village. She has good experience in this domain over five year's time. In the photo, she is the person at the left holding a notebook and booklet in her hand and wearing a black shawl.

She would like to use her loan to buy some merchandise for bolstering her business.  She assists her husband with day-to-day expenses. With the profits, she plans on increasing her savings.
