Diary's story

Diary is 31 years old and lives a few yards away from the [microfinance] institution. A hairdresser by training, she manages to support her parents.

She has been actively involved in business for five years and sells hair extensions, hair weaves and ready-to-wear clothing to meet her needs and to support her parents.

She works from 9 AM until 3 PM and this is the first time she is requesting a loan, in the amount of 200,000 francs. With this loan she wants to buy more merchandise to make more profit. Her dream is to have her own hair salon one day.
