Ya Nere Group's story

Haoua is the Ya Nere group leader. She is married and the mother of 4 children aged between 12 years and 4 months. Two of the children go to school and Haoua is responsible for 6 people.

Haoua has been selling pagnes (highly decorative and colourful West African fabric) for 10 years and she gets her supplies at the Sector 10 market in town. Her customers are both women and men.

Haoua would like to buy 15 pieces of pagnes. She uses her profits to contribute to her children´s educational expenses and to help her loved ones (sister, brother etc.). She would one day like to open a large shop selling pagnes.
