A loan helped a member to buy a stock of pagnes (lengths of African print cloth) for resale.


Groupe Tujitafutiye's story

Nabintu has been selling lengths of African print cloth for 20 years now. With the many family expenses she faces, she is not able to cover everything from her income. That's why she is requesting a loan so that she will be able to cover all the expenses and grow her business. In the photo, Nabintu is dressed in a red and yellow pagne and wearing a black head scarf.
