Fati's story

Mme Fati is married and the mother of one child aged 26. Her child goes to school and she is responsible for four persons. She sells a sweetened porridge/drink called deguè. She has been in this business for 20 years and buys her supplies in a neighboring village.

With the loan funds, she intends to buy 10 sacks of local millet, five sacks of milk, and three sacks of sugar to prepare her deguè.
