A loan of $1,050 helped to buy pagnes.


Valerie's story

A retailer of pagnes (highly colourful and decorative West African cloth) since 2008, Valérie is married to a police officer and has 2 children, aged 16 and 12, who both attend school. She sells her products from her home and gets her supplies at external markets. This, her first loan, will enable her to buy pagnes with new designs. The profits she makes from her sales will allow her to open a shop and ensure that her children get a good education. She is 38 years old.
