Amy's story

This borrower is a teacher at her village’s grade school. She is married and the mother of a child, her own, who she supports. Aside from teaching, she opened a store selling clothing with an initial loan of 100,000 francs from U-IMCEC. Her business enables her to take care of her daughter and her mother and to pay the rent for her store.

In order to increase her working capital, she is requesting a loan of 300,000 francs to buy 20 pieces of children’s clothing, 20 pairs of shoes, and 15 samples of fabrics, as well as various items. Her ambition is to become a wholesale merchant.
