A loan of $1,100 helped to replenish her stock of fabrics and cosmetics.

Fatimata Binta's story

Ms. Fatimata Binta S., aged 50, is a commercante (small trader) in Thies, a city about seventy kilometers from the capital, Dakar. She runs a small business selling fabrics and cosmetics.

Ms. S. has two sales points: one at her home which she manages herself and the other in the local market where she has an employee in charge. The loan of 500,000 FCFA will allow her to replenish her stock and hopefully increase sales.

Ms. S. has been in the trade for over twenty years and uses her revenues to help her husband meet the needs of their five children and extended family.
