Fatoumata Néné's story

Miss Fatoumata Néné D. is a young merchant in the Cité Niakh neighborhood of Thiès. She is 23 years old, and has been selling breakfast, lunches and clothing for almost two years. She inherited the business from her elder sister who left it to join her husband. Miss D., who previously helped her sister run the business, believes that customer relations are the most important part of doing business.

Miss D. has been a member of U-IMCEC for two years, has finished reimbursing a loan two months ago, and is now requesting a loan for 200,000 FCFA to acquire clothes and shoes for resale.

With this investment she intends to offer the option of credit payments to her customers, with a payback frequency established at the time of sale. With her projected earnings, Miss D. will assist her mother with household expenses and take care of her own needs.
