About Me

My name is Maimouna Sarr and I am a single woman, divorced, and responsible for one child. For nearly 5 years I have been in charge of my child and paid for her school. I decided to work for myself. In 2004, I was in Mauretania for business and in 2008 I was in Mali where I opened a restaurant. Next, I started a clothing and cooking utensil business. I had to work a bit in a lot of different fields where I sensed the opportunity to earn money to support my family.

My Business

I do not yet have a lot of capital, but I have been growing little by little in the business of selling women’s clothing. I have already received a loan from SEM Fund which I payed back in 12 months. The amount was 700,000 CFA (roughly $1,400) divided among a group of five borrowers. I’ve finished paying my part and would like to receive another loan so that I can develop a proper full-time business.

Loan Proposal

Now I would like to go to Mauritania to buy some women’s products, high-quality kitchen utensils, home decorations and other varieties of good-quality cosmetics which are in high demand by Senegalese women.
