Mame Bousso's Group's story

This group is composed of two women who live in the same neighborhood and are involved in retail business. They stand by and always help each other.

Mame, aged 55, is standing on the right hand side of the photo and raising her hand. She is married and the mother of eight children, three of whom are girls.

With this loan, she is planning to get fresh supplies for her store where she sells various grocery products. She will buy three bags of rice, three 20-liter cans of oil, ten boxes of soap, ten packages of cookies, some sandals and other products. She works with her son who manages the store.

Mame uses her profits to boost her savings and to meet her family's needs.

In this group: Mame Bousso, Aida
