Oumy's Group's story

This group was founded on 28 May 2009 and comprises 23 women from the same area who share common social values. The group leader, Ms. Ndeye Yacine, is a 40-year-old married mother of two children - one son and one daughter. She is standing all the way on the left in the photo. She has run a business selling cosmetics for a long time and has gained good experience in this field. With her new loan of 140,000 FCFA, she is going to buy tubes of lotion and bottles of perfume, which she will resell at retail in her area and to her friends. The profits from her small business help her take care of her children's nutritional, educational, and health needs.
