Basilisa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy ten cartons of soap and 25 sets of "pagne" fabric and to reinvest the profits in her business.

Basilisa's story

Basilisa is married and mother to five children. The eldest is 41 years old and the youngest 22. One of the children goes to school and Basilisa has six dependants.

She has been selling "pagnes" (brightly-colored pieces of fabric popular in West Africa), as well as shoes and soap, for the past 16 years. She gets her supplies from a market in town. With the money she is granted she is planning to buy ten cartons of soap, 25 sets of "pagnes" for her business and to reinvest the profits in this business. Her ambition is still to build in her yard.
