Ms. Marie V. has been selling traditional African cloth since a young age. She is now 54 but has not lost her talents as a saleswoman. She had been living with her four children in a polygamous household, which was very difficult for her, but she now lives far from her husband. She is requesting a loan of $1000 to ensure the success of her cloth-selling business, as she regularly has to renew her stock with new cloth as it becomes available in order to satisfy and keep her clients. She is a very experienced woman who deserves a loan in order to help her pull herself out of the hardship she has faced for so long.

Revendeuse de pagnes depuis son jeune âge, Madame V. Marie, a aujourd’hui 54 ans mais n’a pas perdu les anciennes habitudes de grande commerçante. Malheureusement elle a vécu dans un foyer polygame avec quatre (04) enfants où elle n’a connu que trop de difficulté.
Aujourd’hui elle vit loin de son mari et sollicite juste un financement de $1000 pour les exigences de son métier de vendeuse de pagnes. Il faut renouveler régulièrement le stock à cause de nouveaux pagnes qui sortent tous les jours afin de maintenir et de fidéliser les clients.
C’est une femme très expérimentée qui mérite un soutien financier pour l’aider à sortir des difficultés qu’elle traverse depuis.
