Fatimata's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy thread to make woven pagne, and bowls and casserole dishes to resell.
Madame Fatimata is a fifty-one year old woman who has been active in the sales of woven pagnes (colorful wax cloth) and kitchen utensils: casseroles dishes and bowls, for more than thirty-two years. Madame Fatimata was one of the first clients at this branch office, where she has benefited from several loans to improve her business, which consists of haggling with a weaver for the making of woven pagnes that she will then put up for sale. She is therefore going to buy thread and pay for labor. With the loan, she is also going to buy casserole dishes and bowls that she will resell in the area. Madame Fatimata wants to have a foundation and financial autonomy in her business in order to be able to build her house properly.
