Makarimal Akhlakh Groupe 30's story

The sub-group Makarimal Akhlakh group 30 is a dismemberment of a grouping for economic interests and consists of 10 women. They are evolving in two different business sectors (commerce and services sectors). Only Madam Seynabou who represents the group and whose hand is raised in the photo practices the business of hairdressing. She manages a salon in the neighborhood where she lives. She capitalizes on 8 years experience in this business. The other women sell fish. Thanks to the revenue that her business brings in, Madam Seynabou manages to take care of the daily expenses of her family as well as the water and electricity bills. She is requesting a loan from the branch of the UIMCEC where she is a member with the goal of supplying herself with hair extensions and hair weaves for the needs of her business. With the growth of her revenue she hopes to diversify the services that she offers to her clientele. Her future project consists in expanding her hair salon.

In this group: Seynabou, Ndeye Coumba, Aissata, Awa, Aminata, Coumba Ndoffène, Thioro, Mame Fadiaw, Aminata, Mame Yacine
