A loan of $1,100 helped to buy grocery items for resale.


Aminata's story

Ms. Aminata lives in Senegal. She is married and the mother of a 7-year-old child. She is active in the commerce of grocery items, such as rice, wheat, sugar, soap, etc. Her husband is a merchant and has influenced her much in choosing this business.

She has been an associate of a U-IMCEC branch since 2009 but has never borrowed from this micro-finance institution. She is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs for buying food items for resale for her business. The revenues earned from her business enable her to pay the rent and to ensure that her child's schooling costs are covered.
