Booku Liggey Kahone Group's story

The group called "BOOKU LIGGUEY de Kahone" is made up of five women who engage in dyeing of fabrics. They either prepare fabrics to order or they make dyed fabric to sell to their customers. This brings in a reasonably consistent income that they divide among themselves equally. They are all married and use their income to cover certain expenses relative to food, health, or their children's schooling.

The president of the group (who is raising her hand) is the mother of two children. She has a little shop in her home and displays her own products there. The group is asking for a loan of 500,000 francs to use to buy cloth and dyes and other necessary products for dyeing. Their ambition is to build a store where they can sell their merchandise.

In this group: Lamarana , Siga , Aissatou , Saye , Arame
