She has an income-generating activity selling "pagnes" (a West African term for decorative fabric), shoes and women's bags on a retail basis. She has been carrying out this activity since 2000. In order to have more customers she conducts her activity on a door-to-door basis. She is requesting a third loan to boost her stock by buying five cartons of bags and ten cartons of shoes.
