Story
About Me

My name is Aissatou Traore, I am from Casamance. I am a widow with one child, who is twelve, who is in school. After the bac (college entrance exam), I received training to be an office secretary. I have a certificate in international business and marketing. Considering the economic situation in my region (the conflicts in Casamance), I work to help my family.

My Business

I work in the Marketing Network and I am a partener in a multinational American company in the health products industry. With at least a minor presence all over the world, we distribute natural products made by Forever Living Products to help people control their health and feel better. The company was founded in 1987 in Arizona and has a presence in 150 countries. Being a partner of this company, I solicit financing to boost my business and to help people all over the world get access to these natural products which help their health every day. Previously to start my business I received a loan of 300,000 CFA (roughly $600) which I finished paying back in 6 intervals in December of 2009.

Loan Proposal

More and more of the population has needs for our natural medical products, I require more capital to have more products, to increase my supply and my distribution. With the profits from my business, I would like to build a home for my family in Casamance and to pay for my son’s education in a top university of the world.

    Seems like hard worker, but not enough information to recommend. God bless in everything you do!

    Not good enough = ="

    Glad she repaid in the end, and that's commendable. But a positive rating would be unfair to those borrowers who repay on time, or if they don't, at least communicate their issues. Neutral is the right rating in this case.

    Not perfect, I agree with johnfay.

    A very long time to payback with very little information. Mentioned would finish paying in August 2012, no word or payment until end of May 2013.
