Fatmata's story

This is 36-year-old Fatmata. She is married and has four children ages 17, 14, 11 and 8. All of them are in school. She has two additional dependents who live with her for schooling. In 2002, Fatmata established her plastic and leather slippers business. She began her business because she wanted to provide support to her husband and a source of income. Working seven days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about Le 500,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. Fatmata requires a loan in order to buy plastic shoes and leather shoes. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 185,000. In the future, Fatmata plans to educate her children, to develop her table into a shop, and to own a house. She thanks lenders for their support.
