A loan of $325 helped to buy cloth and perfumes to resell.


Aissatou's story

Aissatou is 41-year-old widow living in Senegal. She is the mother of three children aged between 12 and 20.

For eight years she has been building a business selling cloth, perfumes and other products. She entered business after her husband died, and it allows her to earn money and develop good customer loyalty. Her business has been a member of the local branch of UIMCEC for eight years. She has already repaid two previous loans and is requesting a 150 000 F loan to purchase cloth and perfumes in order to replenish her stock. Her profits will help her meet her and her children's needs.
