Aissatou's story

Mrs. Aissatou G. is a 49-year old parent member, who lives in Ouakam. Previously she travelled to Mauritania in order to buy goods intended for sale. However, now she has halted this activity and has turned her hand to the sale of "thiakry" (a West African dessert made from millet) and juice. She is applying for a loan of 100,000 francs, in order to buy a large quantity of sugar, millet and other basic items which she needs to run her business. Her profits allow her to look after her three children.
