Hassanatou's story

Hassanatou is a 30-year-old woman who has six children. She works at selling cosmetic products and gets supplies once a month at the market. She wants to take out a loan to pay for more products, such as pencils, makeup foundation, and razors. She wants to develop her business by maximizing her income and thus resolving the precarious situation of her family.
