Maimouna's story

Maimouna N. is 47 years old and a retailer specialising in Moroccan merchandise. She placed her business on hold for 2 years and is now looking to start up again. She lives in Yoff Layenne and has already benefited from 4 loans with the U-IMCEC. She is requesting a loan of 500 000 frs to supplement her own capital in order to travel to Morocco. She chose this activity following the example of her sister who was travelling to Gambia. The merchandise she acquires will be sold by various retailers. To be precise, the amount borrowed will be used to buy clothing and shoes for resale. This investment will allow her to increase her income.
