Aminata (sitting on the far right of the photo) has a well-earned reputation selling sugar. She will use her loan to buy ten sacks of sugar at the main market. She sells her sugar to various individual customers in Sirakoro Dounfing.

Aminata hopes to earn a monthly average of 75,000 francs CFA, which she will reinvest in her business.

In the future, she would like to continue working with Soro Yiriwaso in order to buy a housing plot.
