Bokk Diome De Gawane Group's story

The "Bokk diome de gawane" group has five members, all of whom are married women. They all work selling household products and cosmetics, and buy their merchandise wholesale before dividing it out based on the contribution made by each of them.

The sale of these goods allows the women to provide for themselves and their respective families. The head of the group (pictured to the front with her hand raised and smiling in the photo) is a mother to four children. She sells her cosmetic products from home and on a credit basis, and collects the money one month later.

In order to increase their working capital, the group has requested a loan of 500,000 francs to buy beauty lotions and perfumes.

In this group: Yacine , Fatimata , Oulimata, Diaryatou, Seynabou
