Aminata's story

Aminata is a married woman and mother of three children, two of whom attend school. After finishing her studies five years ago, she began training as a tailor. She then opened her own tailoring shop at home with one machine. Today, she has three. With her business, she is able to provide for her own needs as well as support her children and her husband. In order to strengthen her production capacity and the quality of her services, she is asking for a loan of 250,000 francs to buy a new sewing machine and notions (i.e. items used in sewing). Her ambition is to open a shop selling notions.
