Marimba's story

Mrs. Marimba D. is a merchant who lives in the Daroukhane district in Guediawaye. She has been a member of the Baye Laye branch since May 2006. She is married but has no children. Her business involves buying and reselling products coming from Mali and Cote d’Ivoire such as soap, karité (shea butter), etc. She is passionate about this business, and of course she did not want to remain idle. Her great strength is that the business is successful since the products she sells are always in demand. She is requesting a loan of 250,000 francs to allow her to put in a new order for products and thus bolster her inventory and her sales.
