Catherine's story

Catherine S., age 61, is married and has two young sons to support. She has been a member of the village council of Vélingara Foulbé for seven and a half years. She wants to buy pigs, feed, and vaccine, and to improve the shelter for her business in raising livestock and commerce in pork. Her income enables her to cover the costs of food and schooling of her young sons. The loan she's requesting will be repaid all at once at the end of six months.
