Agée de 41 ans, madame Marième s’active depuis 5ans dans la vente de prêt à porter pour enfants. Elle a fait parti d’un groupement ou elle à bénéficier d’un crédit de 50000F CFA. Compte tenu de la possibilité d’emprunter une somme plus consistante en ouvrant un compte individuel, elle a préférer l’ouvrir pour demander un montant de 400.000F CFA.
Avec ce prêt, elle va acheter des robes, tee-shirt, chaussures pour revendre à ses clients qui font la commande avant qu’elle ne fasse le déplacement. Elle ne supporte aucune charge mais veut quand même améliorer les conditions de vie de la famille en donnant un coup de main à son époux qui gère la dépense journalière. Elle commence sa journée à 8h pour revenir à la maison vers les environs de 20h.
