Mame Yacine's story

Madame Mame Yacine is one of her branch's first clients. She is married and a mother of family. Her husband, who is a teacher of the Koran, has always supported her in her activities. This business, which she started three years ago, consists of selling thick porridge and couscous in the area where she lives. With the loan, she will purchase fresh supplies of millet (one bag), and is also going to buy wood in order to cook. She does not have anyone to support, and takes care of herself and improving her business.
