Afoussatou's Group's story

Afoussatou, aged 48, is the official of a two-person group. She is married and the mother of two children. She stocks up on kitchen wares at one of the markets twice a month and then resells the goods. With the aim of improving their children's standard of living and expanding their business, Afoussatou and her teammate have requested financing from Finadev. The official is the one found at the left in the photo.

In this group: Afoussatou, Rachidatou M. Abebi
