Mrs. Dieynaba lives in Senegal. She is a mother, and she sells juice to earn the income necessary to support some of personal needs. Her main activity is the sale of ice cream and juices in various flavors. She has four years of experience in this activity.

She is a member of a U-IMCEC branch and has previously obtained and repaid one loan. She is seeking a loan of 75,000CFAF to start selling fabrics (bazin, silk, wax).
