Sope Khadim Group's story

The members of the group Sope Khadim, being part of the eco-village Thiaroye, intend to fight against idleness and to take charge of their own destiny. This is why the women got organized into a group. They prefer to be active in the socio-economic advancement of all its members by participating in the development of their community.

The objective of this loan is to bolster their business of processing local grain. This is work they've already mastered, and it is centered on purchasing local grain (millet, corn, sorghum) and then proceeding to process it. The sale of the resulting products "thiacri" and "araw" (the Senegalese names) will allow the loan to be repaid without much difficulty. The turnover of these products pose no problem because the quantity to be sold is less than the level of demand. This loan will allow them to improve the quality and quantity of the goods to be sold.
