but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase cloth, shoes, and smoked fish to resell.

And Siggil Hann 13 Group's story

The association "And Siggil Hann" comprises several women citizens from a suburb of Dakar. At first, they used to associate with one another through weekly tontine meetings enabling them to finance themselves to support their revenue-generating businesses. Today, the association just signed a partnership with the microfinance institution U-IMCEC to bolster the women's economic power in order to help them manage their businesses better and to fight poverty. To this end, "And Siggil Hann 13" is a group of fourteen members who live in the same town and who work in the same business sector. They are represented by Ms. Diatou, a married woman who has been selling cloth and shoes for four years. She is a member of a U-IMCEC branch and is requesting a loan for purchasing some cloth, shoes, and smoked fish to resell. Her ambition is to develop her business and to increase her profits in order to save money and to diversify successfully the products she sells. Her future plans include acquiring her own store for selling cloth.
