A loan of $975 helped a member to buy clothes.


Takku Liggey 3 Kahone Group's story

Takku Liggey 3 Kahone Group comprises five married women and was established two years ago. Its members retail women's and children's clothing.

They get their supplies in the capital, located 82 km from their town. They resell retail either at their home, or on the weekly markets taking place all along the week in their region.

The income earned from their businesses enables the members of the group to provide for themselves, and most importantly, feed their families.

The group leader (in red) built a stand in front of her home to sell her merchandise. She offers her customers pants, dresses and woven pagnes (colorful African wax cloth). She is the mother of three children, whose school fees and clothing expenses she covers.

In order to bolster their working capital, they are seeking a loan of XOF 500'000 to buy clothes.

In this group: Fatou , Kanou , Mariama , Lobe , Ramatoulaye
