Maimouna's story

Ms. Maimouna, a 27-year-old woman, is married and the mother of one child. To alleviate the concerns of having nothing to do and to address the need to manage sundry personal problems of hers, Maimouna has started working in the commerce of various goods. She can sell anything that can generate a profit for her. She is requesting a loan to purchase incense, sandals that are special ordered, and some scarves, which she offers to her customers. Thanks to her small profits, she can support herself and her husband too in covering family expenses. Her greatest dream is to acquire her own house.
