Soukhaly Gouyar Alte Group's story

The Banc Villageois Soukaly Gouyar Alte was created on December 28, 2010; the group "PC 02" is comprised of sixteen women living in the same village. They are related, friends, or neighbors.

Ms. Mbène is the group's official. She is 52 years old, married, and the mother of three children, including a boy; she is active in the small-scale commerce of couscous and capitalizes on good experience. In the photo, she is standing with her left hand raised and dressed in a multi-colored camisole.

Each day, she purchases millet and corn that she processes into couscous to resell in the village.

With this loan, she plans to purchase 4 kg of millet and 1 kg of corn a day, pay the miller to produce the flour for her to make her couscous to sell, so as to make more income.

The profits obtained will enable her to save money each month, help out her husband in managing family expenses, and support herself.

In this group: Mbene, Couna, Ndeye Anta, Mbouba, Yacine, Soda*, Anta, Penda, Awa, Fatimata, Fatou, Asse, Fatou, Maï*, Aïda, Maye
