A loan of $575 helped to purchase 300kg of gum arabic, jujube (a type of date plant) and a water collection basin.


Fama's story

The loan seeker is a married woman who works with her husband, selling gum arabic. He buys the goods from the northern part of the country and his wife is in charge of selling them. Having put some profits aside, she has managed to save up to buy a plot of land and is building a three-roomed dwelling there. Her business enables her to see to her own needs and those of her two daughters. She is seeking a 250,000F loan in order to purchase 300kg of gum arabic, jujub (a date plant) and a water collection basin. Her goal is to build a large house and house her family there.
