Woré is a very dynamic young women who is thirty-eight years old, seen on the left side of the photo with her hand raised. She is married and does not yet have any children. Her work involves selling fabric, cosmetic products and notions. She buys in bulk and resells to individual customers in her boutique located in a nearby neighbourhood. She boasts twelve years of experience in this area of sales.

With her new loan, she will buy lengths of wax cloth, and rolls of damask and Getzner cloths to build up her stock and better meet her customers' needs. Her boutique's location is strategic because she is surrounded by many tailors who are her main customers. Her profits will allow her to build up her savings, maintain working capital and manage her expenses.
