Takku Liguey Dialègne Group's story

The group "Takku Liguey Dialègne" is a solidarity group composed of five women who live in the same district. They run a business involving cosmetics, fabrics, shoes, and a variety of beauty products.

A year ago, they opened an account at the microfinance institution U-IMCEC, and they place their deposits in it to build up savings and to access credit.

The revenues they derive from this business are insufficient for meeting their needs due to their low business capital. To increase this capital, they are requesting a loan of 250,000 francs from U-IMCEC to buy cosmetics and fabrics. Their ambition is to establish a large shop at the market in their town.

In this group: Fatou, Mame Assa, Dicko, Fatou, Aida
