Safietou Amadou
Safiétou is a shopkeeper who opened a general food shop in her neighborhood. She has had 15 years of experience in this business. Safiétou is 41 years old, married, and the mother of 2 children. She is already familiar with the borrowing process as she has already received three loans to improve her business.

Since she is in a heavy traffic area, Safiétou has the opportunity to make her business very productive as there is a high demand for her products. With this loan, she will purchase the food products that sell the most quickly, such as rice, sugar, milk, tea, soap, and beverages.

Safiétou became responsible for her own daily expenses at an early age. She is in charge of food, as well as the education costs for her children, and yet also manages to put money aside. In the future she would like to grow her shop with the help of her lenders.
