Astou's story

Mrs. Astou N. is a 47-year old woman. She lives in Bambilor. She is divorced and has a family to support. She is engaged in different business activities as she has been selling fish and fabrics for over 20 years. She first started this work in order to support her husband and children. And in this way she has been able to provide for her needs. She has been a member of the Bambilor credit union since October 2009. She already had a loan before. She is seeking a credit of 300,000 to purchase fabrics (traditional fabrics such as damask-type thioup, colourful “wax” fabrics, etc), in order to further grow her secondary business in fabrics. Her goal is to increase her revenues and boost her savings.
