A loan of $700 helped to purchase cloth to sell.

Habsa's story

Habsa is 42 years old, unmarried, and without children. She has been a member of the 'banc villageois' in her district since August 27, 2009. She has benefited from eight loans, including four special loans. Her savings increase every cycle.

An energetic and serious woman, she is active in the commerce of cloth and capitalizes on four years of good experience.

She goes around the sub-region to purchase "khartoum" cloth and dyed fabrics to resell in her town.

Her loan will be used to purchase cloth for 300,000 francs. She will pay 50,000 francs in import taxes. Transportation costs and food will be her portion. She would like to be successful in her sales to bring in large revenues.

Her profits enable her to help cover family expenses and to bolster her savings.
