Khady's story

Khady is 29 years old, married and mother to two children, the eldest of whom is five years old and the youngest one. Before launching her cosmetics business, Khady sold bread from home. Having realised that the profit from this was very small, she changed activity with the hope of earning more money. She thus began selling products for women: fabric, cosmetics, bags..and she has been carrying out this activity for five years now. She has already had a loan of 100,000FCFA and is now requesting an increase of 100,000FCFA so that she can gradually improve her business. She is going to buy for resale handbags, bracelets and various fabrics. Khady does not have any specific expenses to cover, but is working to diversify her product base and improve her family's living conditions.
