Marième's story

Marième is 47 years old, married, and the mother of four children. She buys various goods such as jewelry, shoes and incense and resells them within her circle of acquaintances. She has a stall at the local market, and she has been involved in this type of activity for more than 15 years.

She has requested a loan of 500,000 CFA francs in order to strengthen her commercial activity and increase her stock. She helps her husband to cover the family's day-to-day expenses, since she is the one paying the electricity bills.

Her future project is to open a shop, in order to diversify her goods and services.
