Bokk Jom Group's story

The Bokk Jom group was created during the first cycle of the Banc Villageois. It is composed of thirteen members who live in the same village. Ms. Mame Gnilane, who is standing up and raising her hand at the far right of the photo, is the leader of the group. She is twenty-one years old, married, and the mother of two children. She works in sales of various products, an activity that she handles well because she has practiced it for a long time. With the gains from her business she will from now on participate in everyday spending and buy her children's clothing.
