A loan of $325 helped to increase her stock (by purchasing merchandise).

Aminata's story

Aminata is a trader who lives in a town near the capital of Senegal. She has been trading for almost ten years. She is requesting this loan to strengthen her stock of merchandise (exercise books, pens, books, pencils and bags). With this loan, she expects to make enough profits to work on building a store that she has started in town. This will allow her to be more visible in the market. She would also like to help her husband with their household expenses.
