Aissata Abdoul's story

Madame Aissata Abdoul Dème has been selling thiakry, sail fabric and mobile phones for 15 years. She has always wanted to avoid idleness. She make regular trips to Mauritania where she purchases the fabric and the phones she sells. She requested a loan of 200 000 francs to travel, to increase her operating funds and renew her stock of fabrics and notebooks. Her two previous loans enabled her to improve her business and move forward in her activity. She managed to ensure her personal needs and to purchase materials for her house.
