She is 42, married with seven children, 4 girls and three boys. She runs a fabric selling business which she stocks up from the market in town and then sells from home. She has a good 20 years' worth of experience.

With the laon, she will buys rolls of materials (damask, net and waxed). Her business runs well as she offers her customers good quality materials.

The profits will enable her to increase her savings, buy some sheep to fatten with the goal of selling them for the Tabaski holiday.
