Fatoumata's Group's story

Abibata is the leader of the MANDE 2 group. She is doing well, and so are the other members of her group. She is married and the mother of three children. Her oldest child is 15, her youngest is 7. All three attend school. She has three people in her care.

Abibata has been selling vegetables for the past two years. She stocks up at the Pissy market and sells to both men and women. She is very happy.

Abibata wants to buy one bag of dry gumbo (okra), two bags of cabbage, two bags of eggplants and other dry vegetables. She plans to use her profits to increase the size of her stall. Her goals remain the same: she would like to open a warehouse to store her vegetables, and she wants to continue sending her children to school.

In this group: Fatoumata, Fatimta, Abibata
