A loan of $225 helped to buy fabric and damask for resale.


Coumba's story

This woman is a merchant at the central market in Thiès, a city close to the capital of Senegal. For over two years, she has been involved in buying and re-selling fabric and damask of the "riche" type. This loan will allow her to diversify her portfolio in this field, in which she has made efforts to extend her purchase of goods in order to run her business well. With financial support alone, this merchant will be able to run her business well and earn a profit in order to realize her ambition of opening her own store and thus avoiding the need to rent a place to stock her merchandise.
