Sop Sa Jëkër Group's story

The “ SOP Sa Jëkër “ solidarity group was created on December 14, 2008. The group consists of 12 members.
The group’s leader is Déguéne, a 36-year old woman, married and the mother of five, with her own mother also in her care. Déguéne sells food products and shoes. The distributor delivers shoes to her home. She also sells porridge but that doesn’t work so well. She now focuses on selling other types of products instead. She has a long experience in the business.

She will use her loan to buy additional wares to bolster her business. In the photo she is in the right wearing a black scarf. She would like to use the resulting income to grow her savings, ensure the repayment of her loan and improve the life conditions of her family.

In this group: Deguene , Fatoumata, Maguette , Dial, Khady , Penda, Fatou, Rose, Maï, Mareme, Dioumel, Die Demba
