Bouba's story

Ms. Bouba D. is a 27-year-old merchant living in Ouakam. She specialises in selling juice. She has been a member of the Ouakam branch of U-IMCEC for three years. She has now accumulated four years’ experience in this activity already practiced within her family.

Her initial objective was to avoid unemployment, but what interests her most now is adapting her commercial activity and products to what the customers need.

Ms. D. is requesting a loan for 500,000 francs with which she will buy a freezer and local products (sugar, bissap, etc.) to provide her customers with additional offerings.
