Narou Kadior Kahone Group's story

This group is called Narou Kadior Kahone, and is composed of five women who all work in retail and dyeing. They have over five years' experience in this field, and have a regular customer base in the market. They buy fabric (jacquard or another kind) and dye products, and then start their work. Sometimes customers also bring pieces of clothing which they ask the women to dye in a different color from the item's original color.

The head of the group is called Khodia, and she is a married mother. She provides for her children's few needs, as well as supporting her husband with the daily household expenses. The group's members want to open a large production unit in their town - in other words, a dye workshop. This is why they have asked for financial support from a lender who is interested in this area.

In this group: Khodia, Awa, Ourèye, Sokhna, Fatou
