Sope Nabi Group's story

The Sope Nabi group has been in existence since the first cycle of the Banc Villageois. It consists of 10 women who live in the same village and share common social values.
The representative of the group is Gagnsiré (standing at the far right in the photo). She is 45 years old, married, and the mother of 6 children. She also has an additional child in her care, entrusted to her.
She is actively involved in making and selling pagnes (colorful West African fabrics). She has been working in this field for almost 12 years and therefore has a good experience in this activity.
Her new loan will allow her to buy fabrics to make pagnes. She will resell her products in her village to fellow members of the Banc Villageois. With her profits, she is able to help her husband manage daily expenses and buy school supplies for some of the children.

In this group: Gagnsiré, Seyabou, Codou, Fatou, Aida, Borso, Ngoné, Ndéye Khady, Khady, Fatou B
