Gie M Akhlakh Gpe 28 Group's story

Makarimal Akhlakh G 28 is an arm of the economic interest group Makarimal Akhlakh. It is composed of ten women who are active in the commerce sector. They are represented by Ms. Coumba Maram (with her hand raised in the photo). She is a married woman who has been working at buying and selling cloth, cosmetic products, and a variety of other goods for over nine years.

She is requesting a loan from a U-IMCEC branch, where she is a member, in order to bolster her capital and to develop her business further. The revenues generated by her business enable her to manage the family's food situation. She starts her workday at 9:00 AM and finishes at 6:00 PM.

With her financing, she intends to acquire new beauty products to respond better to customers and at the same time to satisfy the demand. Increasing her profits will allow her to save money and also to help improve her family's food situation. Her wish for the future is to expand her store.

In this group: Coumba Marame, Aicha , Tikam, Mareme, Ndeye Astou, Maimouna , Maimouna, Bousso, Adama, Adjaratou Coumba
