A loan of $200 helped to buy sheep for resale, and to continue to sell boiled eggs.

Soukeye's story

Soukèye, age 47, lives in a small village located about 7 km from the main town. She is married and has family. She is actively involved in small retail, having sold boiled eggs for the past three years.

Soukèye, a regular client of our institution, is now applying for her fifth loan. This new loan of 100,000 CFA francs will help her to accomplish something that she does every year: before the Tabaski celebration [known elsewhere in the Muslim world as Eid-al-Adha], she buys sheep for fattening and local resale.

Soukèye is married and, thanks to the income generated from her activity, she helps her husband cover the family expenses. Her goal is to make more money. This is why she is actively involved in various other income-generating activities.
