And Soukali Jeeguene Pire 16 Group's story

This is a group composed of five members who live in Pire, a village located 100 kilometers from Dakar, the capital of Senegal. Their main business activity involves trading with farm products, such as cassava tubers. The group members are experienced in this field and have a strong customer base. The workday starts at 8 a.m. and ends around 8 p.m.

With this financing, the group members intend to buy 100 sacks of cassava that they will resell at the market. The income earned from the sale of cassava will enable them to strengthen their business and provide for their children (school fees, healthcare and household expenses).

In this group: Amy, Djeumb, Sokhna, Magatte, Mareme
