Fatou's story

Mrs. Fatou N. is a widowed businesswoman who lives in the SOM neighborhood in Thiès. Since 1998, she has been selling sandwiches in the evening and breakfasts in the morning, outside her house. She is requesting this loan to bolster her little business, that is, to buy flour, eggs, oil, sugar, etc., and also to buy a sewing machine to sew "pagnes" (brightly printed African cloth used as sarongs). The income will allow her to feed herself and pay household expenses.
