Makarimal Akhlah 20 Yoff Group's story

Makarimal Akhlakh 20 Yoff is a mixed group of ten members, including eight women and two men. They joined the same economic interest group, which used to be a 'dahira' (a religious association) through which they met weekly and paid dues for mutual assistance.

They all have revenue-generating businesses and are represented by Ms. Ndeye Sokhna. She has been active in commerce for over five years and sells cloth. The revenues her business brings in enable her to cover her family's day-to-day expenses, as well as her rent.

She is requesting a loan with the goal of bolstering her working capital. The loan will be for purchasing cloth to increase her inventory of cloth. She would like to increase her profits and be able to join other women in financing some containers. She envisions making her commercial work more profitable.

In this group: Ndeye Sokhna, Saliou, Fatou, Cheikh, Aby, Aissata Hamady Koly, Seynabou, Thioro, Oumou, Ndeye
