Kassofor Group's story

Kassofor Group was established on June 7, 2001. It is made up of twelve women who live in the same neighborhood. Their main business is retailing.

Mrs. Aby, raising her hand on the right in the photograph, is responsible for the group. She's 65 years old, a widow, and without children. But she has three children entrusted to her by family.

She sells fruits and vegetables. She's been running this business for several years, and has a good experience in this field. This loan will enable her to bolster her working capital and better expand her business.

The profits of her business enable her to provide for herself and improve the standard of living (food, healthcare) of the children she has to support.

In this group: Aissatou Lamine, Fatou, Aby, Mariama, Rachelle, Oumy, Brigitte, Binta, Aissatou, Aissatou, Saly, Mbene
