Mrs Maimouna T. lives in Yoff, more specifically in the Mbenguenne neighborhood. She is 64 years old and has been a member of the Yoff credit union since March 2001. She already benefited from three previous loans. She is married without children but keeps busy selling French fries, fruit juice and custard. She also has a sewing activity. She counts a little over two years of experience. Untimely power cuts are the main reason for her discontinuing her sewing activity and redirecting all her efforts towards selling juice and fries. Therefore she is requesting a 200,000 francs loan to build up a stock of the ingredients she uses to make her products (potatoes, powdered milk, sugar). Her objective is to maximize profits to fulfill her personal needs and also to initiate future projects; this is all in order to improve her family's living conditions.

Madame Maymouna T. habite a Yoff plus précisément dans le quartier de Mbenguenne.Elle est âgée de 64 ans et est membre de la caisse de Yoff depuis mars 2001. Elle a déjà bénéficié de 3 prêts antérieurs. Elle est mariée sans enfant mais s’active dans la vente de pomme de terre frite, de jus, de crème et aussi dans la couture. Elle capitalise une expérience d’un peu plus de deux ans. Les coupures intempestives d’électricité sont la principale raison d’arrêt de son activité de couture. Ainsi elle oriente tous ses efforts dans la vente de jus et de frites. Par conséquent elle sollicite un crédit de 200 000 frs pour constituer un stock des éléments qu’elle utilise pour réaliser ses produits (pomme de terre, lait en poudre, sucre). Son objectif est de maximiser ses profits afin qu’elle puisse satisfaire ses besoins personnels et aussi initier des projets futurs ;tout ceci dans le but d’améliorer le cadre de vie familial.
