Isseu's story

Mrs Isseu G. is a young married woman who has three children but is also passionate about her job as a hairdresser. Her ambitious nature has even pushed her into taking on a secondary activity selling both hair and body products as well as other miscellaneous products. She exhibits these products in her salon, which lies a few meters from the savings bank in Ouakam. Furthermore she has also learnt how to sew through her mother. She is passionate about inspiration, beauty and creativity which she shows in keeping up with fashion. She is asking for a loan of 300,000 francs with which she intends to buy "thioubs" (pieces of special tinted fabric) and a hair drier with a view to improving both the equipment in her hairdressing salon and her work performance. Her loan will allow her to increase her profits and maintain her financial independence. In line with its ongoing vision of participating actively to the battle against poverty, U-IMCEC with the backing of its lenders, is succeeding in providing support to people to carry out lucrative income generating activities; this in turn contributes to a welcome socio-economic development.
