Divine Bonte Group's story

Madame Marie Augustine is the representative of the Divine Bonte group. She is married and the mother of three children. The oldest is 32 years old and the youngest is 26 months old. One of them attends school and she has one person under her care. She has been making and selling liquid soap and soap balls for two years. She gets her supplies from Faso Chimie in the Cité AN III part of town. Her customers are women, men, store managers and neighbors. She would like to buy 60 liters of coconut oil, 2 bags of sodium carbonate, 1 bag of carbonate, and 40 liters of Shea butter to make soap. She uses her savings to meet her orders. She was not able to buy a second processing machine, so she still aims to buy a second processing machine and open a store.
