Arame's story

Arame is a 61-year-old woman who has been running a stall and selling fabrics for 20 years already. In spite of her age, she is busy and active and does not want to be idle. She has never asked for a loan before. She is now requesting 200,000 CFA francs for the purchase of new products to be displayed in her booth.

Arame has no other expenses than those related to her own needs. She works from 7 AM until 6 PM.

With this loan, she will be able to diversify her products and services, and to meet her customers' needs. In the future, she would like to open a shop and sell cosmetic products. She would also like to purchase some sewing machines.
