Bokk Xoll Group's story

The Bokk Xoll solidarity group was created on the 11th of July, 2002. It is made up of 8 woman who all live in the same area and are all small retailers. Oulimata, standing on the right of the picture with her hand raised, is the group´s leader. She is 62 years old and widowed. She has no children of her own, but is raising a child put in her care by her family. She is an experienced saleswoman who has been selling "nététou" (a local dish) for many years. This loan will increase Oulimata´s working capital and allow her to restock and develop her business activity. She will use her profits to improve her family´s living conditions - by buying good food and clothes and paying medical bills - and build up her savings.
