Sagar's Group's story

This group was set up during the Banc Villageois' first cycle and is made up of 22 women from the same district or surrounding districts; they are united by good social and professional relationships.

Soukeye, who is the representative of the group, is 61 years old, married and is mother to seven children with seven grand-children who are also in her care.

She has a restauration activity (breakfasts) in front of her home and has good experience in this field. With her loan of 50,000 francs she is planning to buy a large quantity of milk, coffee, butter and chocolate to be able to carry out her business successfully.
