Bokk Diom 36 Group's story

Bokk Diom is a mixed group of six women and two men who live in the same neighborhood as the branch office.

The group president Nogaye has been preparing and selling couscous (made from mil) for over 6 years. She starts her day at 8 am to finish at 6 pm.

She uses the profits generated by this activity to help her husband in managing daily expenditures. She is requesting this 75,000 francs loan to buy millet, transform it into couscous, and finally sell it to her clients.

In the future she wishes to become a major exporter of grain.
