Sant Yalla Kahone Group's story

The "Sant Yalla Kahone" group is a solidarity group consisting of five women who support each other's business activities. They sell fabrics and also engage in dying fabrics.

They rented a house which serves as a workshop, showroom and point of sales. The revenue generated from these activities enables them to both support themselves and their families.

The group's president is a married woman, mother of three. She practiced dyeing for over 10 years and is the supervisor of the group. She also engages in embroidery and beading.

To bolster their working capital, the women are requesting a loan of 500,000 francs to buy fabrics and dyes. Their ambition is to open a large store in the center of town to better sell their products.

In this group: Fatou , Yacine , Denise Mane , Fatou , Ndeye Boury
