Ndeye Sira's story

Mrs. Ndeye Sira F. lives in the Yoff zone, more specifically in the town of Ndeugagne. She is 56-years-old. She has been a member of U-IMCEC since August 2009. She has never received a loan from this institution. Mrs. Ndeye Sira travelled to Abidjan on the Ivory Coast for a long time and has returned to Yoff. Now she is divorced and the mother of 4 children ranging from 23 to 37 years of age. She chose the trade industry as her passion and started selling rice in Abidjan. Now she sells porridge from the local mill which is called Fonde. She has devoted her time to this activity above all else with the intention of making profits and avoiding financial dependency.

She is asking for a loan of 200,000 frs. A part of this loan - 100,000 frs - will finance her work. She intends to buy basic foodstuffs from wholesale dealers at more competitive prices which will allow her to maximize her profits. With the other part of the loan, she would pay for her child's school expenses. Her wish is to improve the living conditions of her family.

Always looking to actively participate in the fight against poverty, U-IMCEC - with the positive support of lenders - succeeds in supporting women in revenue-generating activities which promote valuable socioeconomic development.
