This PS group consists of two women who live in the same village and work in trade. They are represented by Sokhna, who previously benefited from 8 loans from the external account, which she repaid without difficulty. She takes her work seriously and shows great enthusiasm. At age 39, she is a married mother of four children including one boy. She sells a diverse assortment of merchandise. She is on the right in the photo, dressed in blue and pink.

She buys her stock (shoes, clothing, perfumes, incense, fabrics, etc.) at various markets in the vicinity of her village, in Guéoul or Louga, and she conducts her sales in her neighborhood.

She plans to use her loan to buy 225,000 F worth of merchandise, and she anticipates earning substantial income.

She will use her profits to bolster her savings and to help her husband with the household expenses.
