Coumba
Ms. Coumba G. is a young lady, 33 years old, who lives in the town Baye Laye.  She has been a member of the credit association since December 2009.  She is unmarried and has no children.  She has chosen commerce in dried fish and seafood as an option to be able to manager her own life.  She has two years of experience in this business. 

In the past, Coumba was a salesperson in a pharmacy.  Due to the paltry nature of her salary she was receiving at the pharmacy, she was supported by her mother, who is active in the this sector of business.  She says it's a profitable one, since she is able to be independent in it.  Coumba is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs for buying products, which she markets.  This loan will allow her to earn her autonomy by meeting her personal needs and by boosting her savings for future projects in the commercial sector.
