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

A loan helped to buy 2 dozen perfumes, 20 hair relaxers, 6 boxes of cotton balls and 66 sachets of purified water.

Ama's story

Ama is a single woman of 36 and mother to two children. She sells cosmetic products and drinking water.

She purchases her products once per week at the market, then resells them. She would like a loan to buy several cosmetic products, including perfume, hair relaxer, boxes of cotton balls and sachets of purified water. She would like to develop her business by maximizing her revenues and to lift herself out of poverty.
