Souleye Dème Group's story

The solidarity group Soulèye Dème was created on July 23, 2011 when the Banc Villageois was inaugurated. The group comprises 31 women all from the same village. Their main work involves small businesses.

With the profits generated by this loan, she plans on improving her children's living conditions and to help her husband with expenses.
