Tessito Gadamayo/ Jokker Endam Group's story

The Jokker Endam group was created on the 15th of November, 2006, on the inauguration day of the village's "banc villageois". The group is made up of 22 women who live in the same village and are all involved in small retail.

Hawa, sitting on the far right of the picture, is the group's leader. She is 51 years old, married and the mother of 7 children. She also takes care of 2 nephews. She sells vegetables at her local market and is a capable saleswoman with over 3 years of experience in the business.
