Makarimal Akhlakh Gpe 29 Group's story

Makarimal Akhlakh GPE 29 is a sub-group of Makarimal Akhlakh (an economic interest group) composed of ten women. They all work in the commerce sector and sell cloth, cosmetic products, and a variety of other goods.

The women are represented by Ms. Oumou Hamath Mamadou (with her hand raised in the photo). She is married, and she has been selling cloth and cosmetics for over seven years. The revenues her business brings in enable her to help manage her family's food situation. She starts her day at 9:00 AM and finishes at 6:00 PM.

She is a member of a U-IMCEC branch and is requesting a loan for purchasing the goods that she sells with the goal of expanding her business. Her goal is to diversify the range of cosmetic products she sells and also to increase her profits. Thus, she will be able to help cover day-to-day family expenses.

She would also like to boost her savings. In the future, she plans to open a store to develop her business further and to sever her customers.

In this group: Oumou Hamath Mamadou, Mame Mariane, Dié Mbacké, Hawa , Bousso, Wedji, Penda, Oulimata, Ndeye, Khadidiatou
