Sop Sa Dieukeur Group's story

SOP SA DIEUKEUR is a solidarity group which consists of six women. These women work as retail merchants and sell fabrics, sewing supplies and various other products. They are married and have several children. The leader of the group is the mother of three children (in the photo, she is the fourth woman from the right and holding a paper and a pen). She sells "ganila" fabrics at her local market. With her income, she takes care of her own needs as well as those of her children.

In order to strengthen their businesses, the members of the group are requesting a loan of 990,000 francs. They will use their loan to buy fabrics, sewing supplies and other products. Their ambition is to expand their commercial activities.

In this group: Astou, Maïmouna, Khadidiatou, Ndèye , Fatou, Aby
