Ursula Ines Nadine's story

She is 38 years old, single and a mother of five children between the ages of 5 and 18. After getting a divorce, as she is now responsible to provide for her children, she started a business of selling religious articles, fragrances, perfumes and rosaries.
In 1991, she opened a shop to sell religious articles as her neighborhood is not far from the market and a church.
Her sales are between 12,000 CFA francs and 35,000 CFA francs per day, with her new loan she plans to purchase cases of different colored candles, rosaries, fragrances, and perfumes, all of which are in high demand.
As she is very motivated, she plans to have a very successful business and take good care of her children with the profits.
