A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase food products in order to boost her stock levels.


Fatou's story

Fatou lives in Senegal, and is the mother of 10 children - 3 girls and 7 boys, all of whom attend school. She has been running a food business for five years; she begins her day at 6am and finishes at 9pm. This business serves her well, as it is located in a good position in the local port. Fatou uses the revenues she generates in order to see to her children's school fees and her family's everyday expenditure. She is seeking a 500,000F loan in order to boost her food stocks.
