Orokia's Group's story

Orokia is the representative of the DIOUGOU SOMPRIN group. She is doing well, and so are the other members of the group. She is married and the mother of two children, ages 15 and 12, who both go to school. Orokia has four people in her care.

Orokia has been selling clothes and onions for ten years. There has been no problem with her loan.

Orokia buys her goods in Gounra (Lanfiara), near Tiébélé, and she sells to both men and women.

She wants to buy 15 bags of onions and 20 "pagnes" (colorful West-African fabrics), measuring 1 x 3 meters each.

She wants to use her savings to contribute to her children's education. She also wants to continue to save some money. Her ambition is still to open a shop.
