Yiriwa De Tessito Group's story

The Yiriwa De Tessito group was created on the inauguration date of the "banc villageois". It is made up of 13 women who all live in the same area and are principally small retailers. Gnomy (standing, 6th from left) is the group's leader. She is 40 years old, married and the mother of 3 children. She sells palm oil and brooms made from palm leaves that she gathers from the villages in her territory for resale in the regions. Gnomy has a healthy customer base and plans to use this loan to restock on palm oil and palm leaves for resale. She will use the income from her business to ensure her children's education.

In this group: Gnima, Awa, Gnima, Sadio, Denany, Diarra, Dieneba, Anta, Mariama, Fenda, Gnomy, Fatou B , Dieynaba
