Dienaba’s Group’s story

This group of eight was established in December 2011. It is made up of women who share strong bonds of solidarity and mutual help. They live in the same neighborhood and their main business is retail.

Ms. Dienaba is the group’s representative. In the photograph, she’s standing on the right with her hand raised. She’s 38 years old, married, and the mother of five children.

Her business consists in selling fish that she buys on a boat and retails at her home. She owns a freezer to preserve fish. With her new loan, she will buy 10 baskets of 30 kg of fish, store it, and retail it in her neighborhood.

Her profits will enable her to better help her husband in taking care of the needs of the family and her own needs.

In this group: Dienaba , Ousseynatou , Fatoumata , Fatoumata Binta , Lucie , Adele , Makou , Fatou *
