Maimouna's story

Maïmouna is a married woman. She is the mother of two children. After her training in sewing, she opened a workshop in her town. She employs girls and boys who are learning the trade from her. Her business brings in substantial enough revenues, particularly in this holiday period. She thus manages to meet her needs and to cover the expenses of caring for her family. To bolster her business capital, she is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs to purchase a new sewing machine. Her ambition is to open a second sewing workshop.
