Ms. Coumba is a 50-something year old married woman who lives in Senegal. She is active in renting out rooms. She chose this business by necessity in order to support herself. She finds a great deal of joy in helping people find lodging.

Ms. Coumba has been a member of one of the U-IMCEC branches since April 2000. There, she has already repaid three previous loans. She is requesting a loan of 500,000 for completing some work in her house. This will enable her to improve the rooms that she rents out, as well as her living conditions at home. Increasing (her revenues) will allow her to meet her personnel needs and to help out her family further.
