Gpf Diacksao Group's story

GPF Diaksao is a grouping of five women from the same family, who trade in order to improve their living conditions as well as those of their families. The group is managed by the lady, Oumou, who is 65 years old and who has been selling fabrics for the past four years. She has nine grown-up children, the eldest of whom is 30 years old and the youngest 18. She carries out her trade solely to contribute to the family's expenses in view of her advanced years. She has a customer base in the neighborhood and moves very little to sell her products. She would, however, like to vary her activity by selling groceries as well, doing this locally by opening a shop not far from her home.

In this group: Oumou, Penda, Aissata, Aissata, Dewel Bocar
