Mazalo's story

A young woman of 33 years, Mazalo buys grains (corn, millet and fonio, a nutritious grain widely consumed in West Africa) in the center of the country since 2009. She has a job, but adds cereal-selling to her usual work. She would like to secure a good life for herself and in her future marriage, which is why she wants to borrow money in order to grow her business. She sells from her home.
