Divine Bonte Group's story

Marie Augustine is the Divine Bonte group representative. She is married and has 3 children. The eldest is 33 years old and the youngest, 3 years and 2 months. One child attends school and she has one more person in her care. She has been making and selling liquid soap and soap balls for 3 years. She gets her supplies from Faso Chimie in the Cité AN III part of town. Her customers are women, men, shop owners and the neighbourhood inhabitants. She would like to buy 100 litres of coconut oil, 3 bags of soda, 3 bags of carbonate and 60 litres of shea butter with which to make soap. She uses her savings to fulfill her orders. She has not been able to buy her second machine and therefore still aims to buy a second processing machine and open a shop.

In this group: Marie Augustine, Salamata, Poko, Lucie, Mamounata
