Aissatou's story

Mrs Aissatou S. is a 58 year-old married mother of one who lives in the Yoff region. She has been a member of the U-IMCEC organisation since November 2003, and is a saleswoman by trade, specialising in the sale of Bazin (a West African cloth), 'wax' fabric (colourful West African cloth) and thioubs (dyed cloth); she has been involved in this field for over 20 years. Her husband does not bring in enough money to cater for all the family's needs, and so Aissatou must work. She is most interested in generating large profits, and is seeking a 150 000 FRS loan in order to bolster her stock. Her ultimate aim is to improve her quality of life.
