Sopey Naby Group's story

The solidarity group Sopey Nabi was created on 9 JuL. 2011, the day the local Village Loan Fund was established. It comprises 22 women who come from the same area; they are relations, friends, and neighbours, and their main activity is retail.

Ms. Khady, the group leader, is a 64-year-old mother of seven and grandmother of six. She has gained more than 10 years of experience in selling bread. She is standing on the right in the photo, wrapped in a white shawl with her right hand raised.

She replenishes her suppL. of bread at the local bakery and gets her other goods (butter, chocolate, cheese, tuna...) at the stores, and re-sells them at her kiosk.

With her loan, she intends to buy food items and to increase her stock of bread in order to better satisfy her clientele and earn more income.

Khady takes care of the water bills at home, and she also hopes to increase her savings.

In this group: Khady, Aïssatou, Woulimata, Mame Yacine, Fatou, Fatimata, Fatou, Fatim, Aby Aïssatou, Fatou, Yacine, Ndéye Arame, Yacine, Rokheya*, Penda, Seynabou, Ndéye, Yacine, Bitty, Fatou, Abibatou*, Aminata Collé*
