Mariatou's story

Mariatou is a 44-year-old woman. She is married and the mother of three children between the ages of 23 and 18. She owns and runs a mini-restaurant where she has been selling fritters, beans and paste for ten years, in one of the city's neighborhoods.

She is requesting this loan to boost her stock of supplies. She will be buying some bags of flour and sugar as well as some cans of oil in order to increase her sales and profits.

Mariatou will reinvest part of her profits into her business in order to increase her capital and she will use the rest of the money to meet her family's needs.
