Gs Song Taaba Rabele Group's story

The Song Taaba Rebele solidarity group is a good group that has been working with ACFIME since 2009. This group of 3 hardworking women always repays on time. Their businesses are in the commerce and restaurant sectors. Safiata is married and the mother of three (3) children, and is the featured borrower for this group. She has been selling charcoal for the past 6 years and with her business, she is able to help her husband, who also works in commerce. Together, they educate their children. Also, Safiata employs one person who helps her with her sales. With this loan, she wants to purchase charcoal to stock and sell during the rainy season, when it is not easy to find good quality charcoal. She will consequently be able to provide help to a large number of households. With her profits, she will start to prepare for the school year for her children.

In this group: Haoua, Elili, Safiata
