Makarimal Akhla 24 Yoff Group's story

Makarimal Akhlakh 24 Yoff is a group of ten women members of the economic interest group that 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. Aissatou (the one with her hand raised in the photo). For over twenty years, she has worked in commerce and sells cloth and women's handbags. The revenues that her business brings in enable her to cover her family's day-to-day expenses, as well as the rent.

She is requesting a loan with the goal of bolstering her working capital. The loan will be for purchasing cloth and women's handbags for resale. She would like to increase her profits, expand her business, and make it more profitable.

In this group: Aissatou, Amy, Clotilde F.m.j, Amy Colle, Aissatou, Fatou, Fatoumata, Astou, Dieynaba, Astou
