Oumou Koussoum's story

Oumou is a 37-year-old woman who is married and the mother of a single child who is 14 years old. She sells fabric and ready to wear clothing in a shop as well as in a local market. Oumou is requesting this loan of 150,000 francs CFA to increase her stock of merchandise and to diversify her business. She begins her day at 9am and works until 2pm. She hopes to become self-sustaining so she no longer needs the help of loans, and to improve the living conditions of her family.
