Salimata's story

Salimata has been a member of the banc villageois for five years, and has always repaid her loans on time. She is 32 years of age, married, and mother to a young daughter. She works selling fabrics and cosmetic products, and has five years of good experience. She gets her supplies in markets in the capital city, and resells them in her town.

With her loan, Salimata would like to buy a large quantity of fabrics for resale. With the upcoming Tabaski festival she hopes to make a lot of money. With the profit she obtains, Salimata provides for her family and hopes to be able to increase her savings.
