Djiguène Bakhna 63 Group's story

Djiguène Bakhna 63 grops together 5 women who are neighbours - they all live in the same village. Khardiata, the leader, has been selling vegetables for over 10 years. She is married and a mother (she is the one carrying her child on her knees in the picture). She is a courageous woman who thinks only of her household and their daily needs. Her husband gives 2000 francs towards the expenses, she gives around half and sometimes doesn't even expect to be able to give that much. She works from 8 o'clock in the morning to 8 o'clock at night. She is managing to develop her business as she has a loyal clientèle, as well as benefiting from the support of UIMCEC, which she has been working with for 3 years already.

In this group: Khardiata, Rokhaya, Aiissatou, Mariama, Mandaw
