Binetou, who has been handicapped since the age of 10, is the mother of 2 children and is married to a taxi driver. She has been working in retail for over 10 years and also sews, a skill she learnt as a child. She buys and sells fabrics, which is why she wants this loan, and uses her profits to support her husband with the daily expenses. She also manages to build her savings, so that she can better prepare for her future - indeed, she would like to be self-sufficient and one day build a house.
