Mame Yacine
Madame Mame Yacine is one of her branch's first clients. She is married and a mother of family. Her husband, who is a teacher of the Koran, has always supported her in her activities.
This business, which she started three years ago, consists of selling thick porridge and couscous in the area where she lives.
With the loan, she will purchase fresh supplies of millet (one bag), and is also going to buy wood in order to cook. She does not have anyone to support, and takes care of herself and improving her business.
Madame Mame Yacine fait parti des premières clientes du guichet. Elle est mariée et mère de famille. Son mari qui est maitre coranique, l’a toujours soutenu dans ses activités.
Cette activité qui consiste à vendre de la bouillie épaisse et du couscous dans le quartier ou elle loge, elle l’a démarré depuis 3 ans de cela.
Avec le crédit elle va se ravitailler en mil : un sac, et va acheter aussi du bois pour pouvoir faire la cuisson.
Elle n’a pas de charges et s’occupe d’elle-même et à améliorer son commerce.
