Safiétou's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To promote her business.
Safiétou Faofana, a member of the Vélingara Ouest2 Village Bank, is 51 years old and married with four children. She has been with her Village Bank for five and a half years, and has taken out and repaid eleven loans without difficulty. She plans to use this loan to continue her business selling food like fruits, corn, hardboiled eggs, roasted peanuts, etc. The profits generated by her small business will allow her to help her husband support their family and take care of her personal needs.
