Pc1 Darousalam 2 Joal Group's story

This banc villageois was created 12 months ago. Its members are all women who live in the same neighborhood, and who have been related by social and economic ties for a long time. Their main business is the processing of fish products.

Dické is a 34-year-old married mother of six children. She is pictured standing to the extreme right of the photo, dressed in a white t-shirt and black skirt. She has worked selling smoked fish for a long time, and she has fairly good experience in this area. Her new loan of 120,000 francs CFA will allow her to buy fresh fish to process, which she will sell on a retail basis in the area in which she works to customers from other areas.

Dické plans to use the profits she generates to buy more stock and pay for her children’s education.
