Sope Serign Fallou Group's story

The Sope serign Falou group was created at the time of its first cycle with the "banc villageois." It currently has ten members.

It brings together women who live in the same village, share common social values, and almost all of whom are involved in the small-scale retail of vegetables.

Astou is the group leader (seated on the far left of the photo, with a white scarf on her head). She is married and mother of three children, as well as two others who have been entrusted to her care. She is 46 years old.

She works as a small-scale vendor of fruits and vegetables.

She has almost seven years of experience in this line of work.

Her new 50,000 XOF loan will allow her to stock up on goods for her business (tomatoes, carrots, cabbage, eggplants, oranges, mangos...)

The profits will allow her to have savings at the "banc villageois" and strengthen her business.

In this group: Astou, Fatou, Mariama, Ndéye, Fatou, Codou, Nogoye, Fatou, Astou, Ndéye
