Falla's Group's story

The Sop Serigne Bara group was inaugurated on the 21st of September, 2012. It is made up of 50 women who come from the same area and whose main businesses include retail, restaurants, livestock breeding, sewing, crochet and embroidery services.

Khoudia, the group leader, is 30 years old. She is married and the mother of 4 children (2 boys and 2 girls). She sells black-eyed peas and also works as a health advisor in the local health centre. She has a good experience in her line of work, which she has been doing for a long time. She is standing on the right of the picture with her left hand raised. Her loan will be used to buy black-eyed peas, a business which generates a lot of revenue for her. The profits she makes allow her to be self-sufficient and to build some savings with the banc villageois.
