Habibatou's story

Madame Habibatou is a married woman of 36. She has four children whose ages vary between seven and 14. She has been in business since 2000 and manages a shop in a local marketplace. She does this so as not to remain idle. Also, it is an activity she likes a lot.

The most favorable period for her business is the days just before the (Muslim) feast days of Tabaski and Korité. She has been a member of the branch at Yoff since August 2010. She is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs in order to bolster her working capital which will allow her to buy merchandise so as to make her little shop profitable.

More precisely, the loan will be used to buy cloth and ready-to-wear clothing so that she can be ready for the unusually great demand just before the Korité feast day. This loan will allow her to better develop her business and increase her profits so that she can be responsible for her own expenses and not be dependent on her husband. .
