Ms. Rokhaya D. is a married mother of 5 children. She is 54 years old and is seeking her first loan of 500,000 FCFA to support her business. Indeed, she sells various goods and has run her own general food store since 2008 in the Fahu area in the city of Thiès.
It was after having noted that the area lacked a store of this type that she decided, with the help of her son who financed her, to open her store and satisfy the purchasing needs of this new area of Thiès.
With the money from this loan, she intends to replenish her stock by supplying her store with the necessary merchandise.
