Sokhna's Group's story

This group is made up of very committed women who, since the creation of the banc villageois on June 6, 2002, knew to develop, along with more revenue-generating activities generally turned towards small business, strong bonds of solidarity and mutual assistance.

Ms. Sokhna (standing to the far right) is the star borrower of this group. She is married, and the mother of four children of which one is a boy and three are girls. She is very enthusiastic and runs a local natural fruit juice and ice cream business in the weekly markets surrounding her village. To do this, she buys sugar, food coloring according to the flavor, and monkey bread, hibiscus leaves and plastic wrapping. Her new loan will allow her to buy: two 50 kilogram bags of monkey bread, a bag of hibiscus leaves, a bag of sugar and food coloring. With the profits, she expects to improve the living conditions of her family and support her husband in managing the daily needs of the family.

In this group: Sokhna , Filidie, Dienaba Sarr, Aramata, Fatou
