Ramata, a 33-year-old woman, has been selling vegetables for four years. She is married and a mother of four children. Her youngest child is only eight months old, and so she has only returned to work recently.

She starts her day at six a.m., and finishes at 1 p.m, after which she goes home to take care of her children.

This is her first loan experience and she is asking for 100,000 francs CFA to buy a large quantity of vegetables that she will resell. She hopes to open a small general store.
