Baobab Senegal: To buy a new sewing machine and new fabrics, I borrowed 600 000 FCFA (~1,000 USD) over 6 months, and it cost me 150 000 (~250 USD) FCFA. I opened a checking account to manage my credit and a Sukaliku savings account to save some of my income. I pay back monthly my credit in branch when I have time and in Baobab points when I'm in a hurry.
