Rokhaya is married and the mother of six children, only one of whom is in school. Depending on the production seasons, she sells mangos, groundnuts or sorrel leaves.

Rokhaya is among the top customers of her local branch of UIMCEC. She has already obtained and repaid four loans without any delays. In order to strengthen her business, she is requesting another loan of 100 000 francs for the purchase of mangos and groundnuts. The income from this loan will help her provide for her children, and pay for her daughter's school fees. Rokhaya hopes to open a food store.
