Soukhaly Gouyar Alte Group's story

"Banc Villageois Soukaly Gouyar Alte" was created on December 28, 2010; the group PC 01 is composed of nineteen women who live in the same village. They are related, friends, or neighbors.

Ms. Awa, the group's official, is 31 years old, married, and the mother of five children, including two boys; she has been active in the small-scale commerce of clothing and cosmetic products for a very long time and has good experience. In the photo, she is standing in full view and dressed in a green-yellow dress with a scarf around her shoulders, and her left hand is raised.

She purchases babydoll nighties, children's clothing, blush, and eye shadow in the cities and resells them in the village.

With this loan, she plans to purchase 50 outfits for children, 30 nighties, and a dozen blush compacts, thus bringing in large revenues.

The profits obtained will enable her to save money each month, help her children with schooling costs, and support her husband in managing family expenses.

In this group: Marame, Awa, Dague, Fatma, Amina, Mara, Ndeye, Fatou, Faly, Diabou, Aminata, Madjiguene, Tabara, Awa, Bouba, Marame*, Ndeye Dial, Faty, Marame
