Association Femmes Sengaz 4 Group's story

The Sengaz 4 Women's Association consists of five women whose president, Ms. Mada, is dressed in purple and carrying her child on her back.

She has been active in the retail of various products and cosmetics, but also fruits and vegetables. She has over ten years' experience in the business and started with a capital of 100,000 FCFA derived from personal savings.

It was only last year that the group met the IMCEC institution.

Mada is married with two children: one of whom is behind her back. Thanks to the profits from her activities, she supports her husband in managing the household and at the same time has developed her savings.

Her dream is to open a store selling cosmetics.

In this group: Mada, Fatoumata, Seynabou, Mariama , Dior
