Rokhaya's Group's story

This happy-looking group comprises 22 women who have joined the "banc villageois" since its first cycle. They are united by good social and professional relationships.

The group's representative, Aissata, is a 44-year-old married woman and mother of two children (one boy and one girl) who both attend school. She is standing at the far right of the photo, raising her hand, and dressed in white.

Her new loan of 50,000 CFA francs will help her to buy some sets of cups and plates which will be resold for retail in her neighborhood. Her goal is to develop her small business.

With her profits, she will be able to take care of her children's nutritional, medical, and educational needs.
