A loan of $425 helped to expand her business.


Salamatou's story

Salamatou is a young 35-year-old woman, married and mother of three children whose ages vary from 6 to 12 years. All the children attend school.

She is an experienced merchant who for the past 11 years has been managing a small phone call center (call box) and a small stall in one of the capital's neighborhoods.

Due to the limited income generated by these businesses, the considerable increase in her customer base and constantly being out of stock, she would like this loan so she can regularly stock up on communication credits with the telephone operators, which would considerably increase her profits.

These profits would allow her to reinvest to expand her stall and also meet the needs of her family.
