Mbootu Diam Group's story

The "MBOOTU DIAM" group is made up of five married women. They sell food products and salt and the income from this trade enables them to meet their personal needs as well as participating in their families’ food expenditure .Their group is a member of a large “mbotaay" (solidarity group) which brings together 50 women in their neighbourhood. The women benefit from this " mbotaay" in the form of a subsidy each Sunday as well as a revolving credit organised at the beginning of each month. ” MBOOTU DIAM" is led by a woman whose principal activity is the commerce of salt. She has a plot of land in the lagoon which surrounds the town. She collects the salt, treats it, and then sells it to the retail shopkeepers. Her ambition is to build a shop at the market for the storage and sale of her product. The group requests a loan of 250000F from the UIMCEC for the purchase of salt, peanut butter, and palm oil.
