A loan of $325 helped to buy beads, incense (Thiouraye), fabric, T-shirts and pants for resale.

Khady's story

Mrs. Khady lives close to our branch office. She is 40 years old, married and the mother of four. She sells beads and fabric, and has 26 years of experience in this area. Khady has no dependents because her adolescent children help her with household expenses.
She needs this loan in order to buy beads, incense and T-shirts for resale. She starts her work at 8 AM and ends at 6 PM. In the future, Khady would like to open additional sales points in order to increase her revenues.
