A loan of $775 helped to buy used clothing for resale.


Fatou's story

Mrs. Fatou Diène, 61, has lived in the village of Yoff for a good number of years. She is married and the mother of four children. She has been working for more than 40 years selling second-hand clothing. Before that she worked as a maid, but she especially chose the work in sales because she likes to see how she can satisfy her clientele and know that she is earning money from her work. Mrs. Diène has been a member of the Yoff branch since November 2003. She has already reimbursed seven prior loans. She is requesting a loan of 350,000 francs intended to buy used clothing. She hopes to grow her working capital and expand her business. The profit she makes will allow her to improve living conditions for her family.
