Maïmouna's story

Maïmouna is married and the mother of seven children. She sells cosmetic products, necklaces and other jewellery. She buys her products wholesale and resells them to individuals, who buy using cash or on credit. Maïmouna's business has increased her income and covers a large part of her living expenses. She also supports her husband in paying for their family's food. In order to bolster her business, she is requesting a loan of 500 000 francs to buy beauty lotions, highlights for hair, necklaces and other jewellery. Her ambition is to start importing beauty products.
