Tongnooma Group's story

Sompassekde is the representative of the TONGNOOMA group. She is doing very well and has been able to buy clothes, as she expected. She is married and has no children, therefore no one attends school. She has one person in her care.

For the past three years she has been selling ready-to-wear clothing for women, girls and boys. With her profits, she has been able to do many things for her family.

She has renewed her loan and is planning to work in a way that her work is more profitable. She stocks up at the 10th district in town. Her customers are women, girls and children.

She wants to buy three dozen tops for women and girls, one dozen complete outfits for children, and some "pagnes" (colorful West-African fabrics).

Sompassekde saves her profits to expand her business. Her ambition is to purchase a motorized bicycle and to contribute to the family expenses.
