Astou Mbène's story

Astou Mbène lives in the main town. Married without children and 49 years old, she has been developing her business for 5 years. She works from 9am to 5pm to be able to meet her personal needs. She buys halieutic products to then resell them at the market.

Astou Mbène had to take out several loans from the institution and always repaid promptly. She is requesting a loan of 300,000f to make her business yield a profit in order to make more profit and one day be financially autonomous.
