Diamo Group's story

The Diamo solidarity group was established on December 4, 2007 and is made up of thirteen women who are inspired by a spirit of mutual assistance and run businesses primarily focused on trade.

Adama, the leader, is 38 years old. She is married and the mother of four children; her two nephews are in her care. She is very buS. in the trade of dried fish and makes the most of her more than ten years' experience. In the photo, Adama is standing at right, dressed in a white boubou [traditional African dress] with pink flowers and her right hand raised.

Adama gets her supplies at the port of the capital and resells them in the main marketplace in town.

Her loan will allow her to increase the quantity of dried fish in order to please her customers and increase her income.

Adama supports her husband in the expenses of the family and her children for their various needs. With her profits, she hopes to purchase a plot of land for her children, and perhaps even to build them a house.

In this group: Adama, Saly, Aïcha, Lena, Soda , Mareme, Yaya, Ndoumbe, Fama, Fatou, Seynabou, Ngouye, Sokhna*
