A loan of $125 helped to purchase artisanal coffee to sell.


Khady's story

Our borrower, named Khady, is 33 years old and a married mother of two. She has been active in small-scale commerce for three years. Her business involves selling artisanal coffee that is ground but not yet prepared; it is called “Touba coffee” and is highly prized in the country. She packages the coffee in one-kilo or half-kilo bags and goes door to door selling it. She receives special orders from breakfast sellers and from food stalls. Ms. Khady meets her needs with her profits and volontarily helps to improve her family’s living conditions. She wishes one day to open a store selling grocery items.
