She is on her third individual loan. She plans to use this loan to buy two bundles of Wax pagnes (brightly colored cloth used to make clothing). She gets her supplies in Bamako.
Mrs. Sira sells for cash and credit to a clientele of men and women. She plans to make a monthly profit of 45,000 FCFA, which will allow her to take care of family expenses and to keep her business running.
