Makarimal Akhlakh Groupe 19's story

The sub-group Makarimal Akhlakh group 19 is a dismemberment of a grouping for economic interests which consists of 10 women. These are wholesale fish merchants who are progressing in the commerce sector. They are represented by the woman Sokhna Diop (the person with her hand raised in the photo). She has a double business selling fish and imported fabric. This second business obliges her to travel to the countries with a large commercial vocation to get her supplies in fabric. She has more than 30 years experience in the business that she practices. She is a member of a branch of the UIMCEC and is requesting a loan in order to strengthen her working capital and to buy fish to increase the quantity of products that she is selling. With the increase in her profits she envisions increasing her level of savings and contributing to the improvement of the nutritional conditions of her family. Her future project is to become a great business manager.

In this group: Sokhna Diop, Fama, Mame Yacine, Marème, Marie, Deka, Seynabou, Arame, Fatou, Fatou
