Khady's Group's story

The Banc Villageois Bolo Bokk Jom was established on March 29th, 2013. It is made up of forty-five women who are seeking their second loan. They live in the same village and their main business is growing vegetables, raising cattle, and retail.

Mrs. Khady, age 55, is the president of the group. She's married and the mother of six girls. She runs a retail business and has more than ten years of experience in this field. In the photograph, she's standing on the right, raising her hand.

She buys sugar, dried fish and dried shrimps, that she resells door-to-door. She's a traveling saleswoman and doesn't have a fixed location.

With her loan, she intends to buy dried shrimps (for XOF 25'000), dried fish (for XOF 15'000), and sugar (for XOF 30'000). She hopes to increase her sales and income. Her business is doing well in her village and its surroundings.

With her profits, she intends to bolster her savings in order to get a higher loan and achieve financial autonomy.
