A loan of $2,000 helped a member to buy merchandise (footwear and scarves).


Sope Baye Niass Group's story

The solidarity group Sope Baye Niass was created on June 29, 2009. It is composed of eleven members from the same town. Their main work involves commerce.

Ms. Tabara (seated at the far right in the photo) is the group's official. She is 45 years old, married, and the mother of two children.  Her main business involves commerce in footwear, scarves, millet, and peanuts.

Her loan will enable her to stock up on a sufficient quantity of merchandise in order to respond to the demands of her customer base, which is essentially made up of women. Her goal is to increase her turnover and to build a house.

In this group: Tabara, Coumba, Sokhna, Aissata Aliou, Fatou, Binta, Dior, Aissatou, Mariama, Hawa, Hawa
