A loan of $900 helped to buy traditional "bazins" fabrics.


Ablavi's story

Married to a welder, Mrs. Ablavi has been trained as an aluminum furniture maker, but after receiving her diploma she has had no luck in that field. Therefore she chose a parallel activity, selling “bazins” outfits (African fabrics made by hand by women from the Sahel Region). She stocks up in Mali and resells to her clients out of her home. She has two children and would like to contribute to the family budget. This loan will give a boost to her business activities.
