A loan of $1,275 helped to purchase kitchen utensils.


Ami's story

Ami is married to an office worker. She has been selling goods door to door since 2000. To stock up on merchandise, she is asking for a loan of 600,000 francs that she will use to purchase kitchen utensils and some ’pagnes’ (the colorful cloth of western Africa).

Ami is 48 years old and the mother of four children, aged 10, 12, 15, and 18 years old. She struggles to provide them a good education. With this fourth loan, Ami will be able to respond systematically to the growing demands of her customers. She envisions using part of her revenues to expand her business.
