Khady's Group's story

This 'banc villageois' was created on 16th December 2013, and is made up of women who get on with one another very well, and all live in the same neighbourhood. Most of them work in retail, raising animals or dress-making.

Oumy (standing on the right, with her hand raised, in the photo) is 27 years old. She is married and has a daughter. She runs a shop in her neighbourhood, where she plans to sell rice, sugar and oil. She will buy a sack of rice for 13,500 francs CFA and resell it for 275 francs CFA per kilo, a sack of sugar for 21,000 francs CFA and resell it for 600 francs CFA per kilo, and a drum of oil for 15,500 francs CFA and resell it for 1,000 francs CFA per litre.

Oumy will use her profits to increase her savings and reinvest in her business.
