Mame Bousso
Ms. Mame Bousso D., 39, is the married mother of three children. She is a seamstress and a dyer by trade. However in 2007, she got into the business selling firewood. It was her husband who strongly encouraged her to sell firewood. In fact, her husband is a truck driver who covers almost all of the southern region and buys Casamance wood for a good price (respecting the restrictions established by the administration of Waters and Forests).

Thus, she is seeking a loan of 200,000 francs CFA in order to buy more Casamance wood to grow her business and satisfy her customers.
