Fatou's story

Fatou, 28 years old, is a married mother of three children, of whom the oldest is a 9-year-old boy, and the youngest is 4. Fatou works in the grocery trade and has opened a store in her house where she lives. She works from 7 AM until 11 PM.

With this loan, she is going to purchase rice, oil, sugar, and a variety of other merchandise which she sells in her store. She supports her husband in managing day-to-day expense. Since she loves commerce, she would like to open another store in the house.
