Idayatou's story

Idyatou is a 26-year-old woman and the mother of two adorable children aged six and two. For the moment, only the eldest attends school. Idyatou's spouse is a mobile phone retailer.

To contribute to the family's expenses, Idyatou has been selling beauty products in the market since 2008. She hopes to reinvest in her business with the profit from her first loan, and to help her husband provide for their child's education.
