Volimata's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy "thioubs" (special tinted fabric).
Mrs. Valimata K. lives in the Yoff district. She is married, 42 years old and has seven children. She has a business selling sandwiches, an activity she went into as a result of her sister's influence, if only to provide partially for some of her personal needs. She is requesting a loan of 100,000 francs with the intention of diversifying her business and buying "thioubs" (special tinted fabric) which she will sell. The profits she makes will allow her to improve her social living conditions.
