Mrs. Nana Sidibé, 43 years old, is married and the mother of three children. She lives in a polygamous family with her husband, her children and her husband’s other wives in the Médine district of Bougoni.

Since her parents had no resources, she decided to earn a living by selling clothing. She has learned this line of business from her sister. Now, with over eight years of experience, she excels at what she does. In order to maintain a constant level of working capital, she decided to join the solidarity credit association in her district. After two solidarity loans, she moved on to an individual loan. All previous loans have been duly repaid.

With this loan she plans to purchase outfits at Burkina Faso in order to resell them at her store at the Bougouni market. For the most part, her customers are women. She hopes to achieve a monthly income of 50,000 West African Francs, which she plans to use for repaying the interest on her loan and for growing her business.
