A loan of $75 helped to purchase 4 lengths of 'pagne' cloth.

Adiatou's story

Adiatou is a seamstress and has been in this work for two years. A disabled individual, Adiatou has been deaf since childhood. Despite her situation, she struggles to support herself by selling bags, kits, and cases that she makes using 'pagnes' (the colorful cloth of western Africa) for resale at her church. With the loan she is requesting, she will purchase 4 lengths of 'pagne' cloth to improve the production quality of her bags and other products, since the demand is ever-increasing. To make her products, Adiatou goes and gets supplies once a month.
