Soutoura Group's story

This solidarity group was created on March 22, 2001. It comprises sixteen women who live in the same district. Their main work involves retail commerce.

Ms. Odile, who is at the right in the photo with her hand raised, is the group's official. She is 43 years old, unmarried, and the mother of two children. She also supports one other child entrusted to her by the parents.

Ms. Odile is active in selling brooms. She has good experience in this business domain which she has been working at for several years.
