A loan of $225 helped to buy palm oil, honey and brooms for resale.


Mariama's story

Mariama is married and the mother of 6 children. She is a market trader and sells her wares in a town close to Dakar. She will use this loan to restock on palm oil, honey and brooms to resell at her local market, where she runs a canteen. Her husband gets her supplies in Casamance, in the south of Senegal, where the prices are cheaper. Mariama has been active in the retail sector for over a decade and will use her profits to finance further retail projects such as setting up a wholesale business.
