Ndeye Fama's story

This borrower is a married woman and the mother of three children. Two of her children are in primary school. For nearly a year, she has had a business involving fabrics, bed sheets, and a variety of items. She covers the cost of schooling for her children and supports herself with the income from this business. Her ambition is to set up a stall in front of her home to earn the loyalty of her customers. She is requesting a loan of 200,000 francs to buy some fabrics and bed sheets both large and small, as well as some sewing supplies.
