Sop Seydina Mohamed Group's story

The solidarity group called Sop Seydina Mohamed was created on December 14, 2008 and brings together 16 women who all come from the same neighborhood and whose principal activity is small-scale retailing. The president, Diama, is 47, married, and responsible for two children, two nieces and her ailing mother. She runs a grocery store together with her brother. She has good experience in this field. In the photo, she is on the right, dressed in a blue and red robe with an orange scarf over her shoulders and raising her left hand. She would like to use her loan to bolster her business so as to earn more. She is responsible for the medical treatment of her mother and her husband, who are both ill, and she pays for her children's training and school fees.

In this group: Diama, Siny, Adama, Daba, Mbayang, Yacine , Fatou, Khardiata, Awa, Fatma, Ndeye , Astou, Nogaye , Ndeye Mossane, Khoudia, Bintou
