Awa Ly Sall Group's story

The solidarity group called 'Awa Ly Sall' was created on July 9, 2011. It is made up of seven women who are neighbors and friends. They come from the same "dahira" (African association), and small-scale retailing is their main activity.

Seynabou, who is married and 60 years of age, is raising her own five children plus one other. She just retired in December 2011, and with the loan from CAURIE-MF she began selling children's clothing. She is dressed in blue and sitting on the right in the photo.

She buys clothing in the big cities of her country and resells the clothing in her town, more precisely in her neighborhood.

She contributes to supporting the family.

In this group: Seynabou, Fatimata, Naffissatou, Seynabou, Fatou, Aissatou, Aminata
