Makarimal Akhlakh Gpe 15 Group's story

Makarimal Akhlakh Gpe 15 Group is made up of 10 women who work in the same sector, all of them selling fish. They also belong to the same economic interest group, Makarimal Akhlakh.

The group is represented by Adama, the lady with her left hand raised in the photo. Adama has built up 15 years of experience in the sale of fish. She is married and the income that her business provides allow her to see to her children's education. She begins her day at 5am, ending it at midnight.

Adama is seeking a loan with the intention of increasing her working capital. Her loan will be intended for the purchase of fish in order to increase the quantity, [as well as to] market and grow her business selling fish. She hopes to expand the number of people she employs in her business, increase her profits in order to better meet her children's school fees, and improve her family's food supply. Her future plan is to purchase her own pirogues [dugout canoes].

In this group: Adama, Oumy, Aissatou, Meissa, Ramatoulaye, Sangoule, Manouma, Ndoumbe, Mbissine, Coumba Ndoffene
