Nafore De Pakour01 Group's story

The Naforé group was created on the 30th of December, 2008, the inauguration date of the "banc villageois". These women are all very devoted to their businesses. There are 12 members, all living in the same village and all principally small retailers.

Souboum (standing, far right) is the group's leader. She is 55 years old, married and is taking care of 2 dependent children and one grandson. She sells various food products (mainly tea and sugar). She has been in this line of work for many years and is very knowledgeable about it. This loan will enable her to better manage her business by buying large quantities of tea and sugar for resale. The profits will allow her to improve the food and health care of her family.

In this group: Souboum, Coumba, Mariama, Fatoumata, Adama, Noumou, Fatou Niaka, Kadiatou, Fatoumata, Fatoumata B, Aissatou M, Kadiatou Manato
