A loan of $975 helped to buy pagnes for resale.

Mansa's story

Mansa K. is 54 years old, married, and the mother of five. She has been a retailer of pagnes (colorful West African cloth) since 2001 at the grand marketplace of Kpalimé, a city about 120 km from Lomé, the Togolese capital. She wishes to use this loan, her fourth one with FECECAV, to expand her commerce by buying different ranges of pagnes. This chance will allow her to increase her turnover and consequently her profit, out of which living conditions improve.
