Linguère De Falokh Group's story

Group "Lingère de FALOKH" is composed of five women, all married. They run retail businesses for food products such as fruits, vegetables, and other grocery items. They purchase wholesale and split products between them. This trade allows them to support themselves and their children, notably to pay for school expenses.
The group leader (wearing blue, to the right) is a mother of five children, three of whom attend school. She sells oranges, mangoes and vegetables on a table set in front of her house. She helps her husband a lot with food expenses.
To increase their working capital, the group is requesting a 990,000 XOF loan with which they will purchase fruits, vegetables, millet, and groundnut butter. The group’s ambition is to extend their business to other, more profitable products.

In this group: Bassine, Marième, Mariama, Ndoumbé, Téning
