Aïssatou's story

Aïssatou is a married woman who has her own five children in her care as well as one of her brothers' children. She has been selling clothes, perfume and incense for almost five years and this business procures a non-negligeable income for her, thus allowing her to provide for her own needs and also to contribute towards her family's clothing, food and health costs. She is currently requesting a loan of 200,000 francs to buy clothes and perfume. Her ambition is to set up a large shop in her town.
