A loan of $600 helped to increase working capital.


Ouleye's story

Mrs. Ouleye S. lives in Ngor, a village near Ouakam. She is 51 years old, married with 4 children. Mrs. S. started her business to earn income because she wanted to find a way out of the difficulties she was facing. This is how she came to be in the business of selling local produce and fritters for more than ten years. Mrs. S. has been a member of the UIMCEC bank in Ouakam for the past 3 years. She has already had one loan, and she is now asking for a new loan of 300,000 francs that will increase her working capital so that she can increase her inventory. She expects that this loan will allow her to grow her business and increase her income, which in turn will allow her to contribute to the family expenses.
