Aminata's story

Madame Aminata lives in Senegal. She is 54 years old. She is a divorced woman and mother of three children between the ages of 16 and 33.

She is in the business of selling women's products. She stared this business just after she retired, under the influence of her merchant brother. The most important step for her in her business is choosing her products. She is a member of her local branch of U-IMCEC and is seeking a loan of 300,000 francs, which she plans to use to purchase women's products for resale.

She aims to increase her working capital as well as her profits, and raise her family's standard of living.
