Sop Souleye Seck Group's story

The solidarity group Sop Souléye was created on May 12, 2010. It is made up of eight women who are neighbors and are able to easily meet before the monthly meetings. Their main activity is retail.

Mrs. Khoudia, the leader, has three children. Her experience in her activity is average; she has been practicing it for a year but she is very dynamic. She gets her supplies such as oil, pepper, garlic, and broth in large stores and resells them in her village. She is on the right of the photo dressed in blue.

Her loan will allow her to increase her products and diversify her merchandise by buying clothing and shoes to make more profit.

With the profit she makes she helps her husband with the family’s expenses and contributes to the well being of the children.

In this group: Khoudia, Galasse, Anta, Racky, Amy, Ngone, Arame, Binta*
