Makarimal Akhlakh Gpe 16 Group's story

Makarimal Akhlakh gpe 16 is a group of 10 women who are all in the same line of business: buying and selling fish. They all belong to the same group: Makarimal Akhlakh. Their representative is Oulimata (the lady who is sitting with her hand raised in the photo). Oulimata has 25 years experience in her business and is requesting a loan so that she can increase her working capital and further strengthen her business. Her loan will enable her to buy fish to re-sell. Oulimata starts work every day at 5 o'clock in the morning. She is a married woman and uses the money she makes from her business to pay for her children's education and to improve her family's nutrition. With an increase in her profits, she hopes to diversify her business activity and start selling shoes, fabric and honey. In the future, she plans to acquire a refrigerated vehicle to meet her business needs.

In this group: Oulimata, Fatou Kiné, Yaye Atou, Aminata, Magatte, Dibor, Akhlam Rahmet, Safiétou, Khady, Penda
