Maymouna's story

Mrs Maimouna T. lives in Yoff, more specifically in the Mbenguenne neighborhood. She is 64 years old and has been a member of the Yoff credit union since March 2001. She already benefited from three previous loans. She is married without children but keeps busy selling French fries, fruit juice and custard. She also has a sewing activity. She counts a little over two years of experience. Untimely power cuts are the main reason for her discontinuing her sewing activity and redirecting all her efforts towards selling juice and fries. Therefore she is requesting a 200,000 francs loan to build up a stock of the ingredients she uses to make her products (potatoes, powdered milk, sugar). Her objective is to maximize profits to fulfill her personal needs and also to initiate future projects; this is all in order to improve her family's living conditions. Madame Malmouna is pictured here in her home.
