Sokhna's Group's story

This group of women has been part of the village lending group (banc villageois) since its first cycle, and they are united by good social and professional relations.
The leader, Madame Oulèye, is a married woman, 39 years old, and mother of two children (one boy of 13 years and one girl of 11).
She is sitting down in the second row at the far right of the photo, with her hand raised and wearing a large blue and black boubou.
She has been active in the fabric selling business for a long time and has good experience in this area, which comes from having practiced this business for ten years.
With her new loan of 200,000 XOF, she is going to buy rolls of fabric to sell retail in her area. The profits realized through her business will allow her to take care of her children's food, school, and health needs and to strengthen her savings at the village lending group.
