A loan of $400 helped to buy fabric to resell.


Hawa's story

Hawa is a widowed woman who lives in Sénégal. She sells fabric and has been working in this field for more than 5 years.

She is requesting a loan of 200,000 frs which will be used to buy fabric to resell. She wishes to strengthen her working capital even more.

The income that her business generates for her allows her to support part of the responsibilities of her family of 7 children. Her goal consists in beginning to run her own boutique selling clothing for children. Her future intentions are also to acquire a large store to sell fabric.
