Soda's Group's story

This group, comprising 21 women, was formed during the loan cycle of a local village loan fund. It consists of women from the same town who are united by good social and professional relationships.
Their leader, Sob, is 50 years old, married, and has five children.
She is dressed in white and green, standing all the way on the right in the photo. Sob runs a business selling various fabrics. Her new loan of 80,000 FCFA will allow her to buy "Khartoum wax" fabric, which she is going to sell at retail in her town.
The profits earned through her business will allow her to take care of her children's financial, nutritional, and educational needs.
