Laban Kognouma 2 Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to strengthen her business (oil and condiments) in order to take care of the needs of her children.

Laban Kognouma 2 Group's story

Binta is 49 years old, married, and the mother of seven children. She has sold condiments for 10 years. She needs a loan to buy condiments and oil to sell. Her point of sales at the market is in a good location, she is known for her experience, she is very respectful and welcoming to her customers, and most of all, she sells quality goods. All of this is why her business goes well. After her sales, she will have a profit that will allow her to save to take care of her family, and also to continue her business. She is on her third loan with ACFIME and the payments have been made as expected.
