Faty's story

Faty is 56 years old, married and lives in Senegal. She has been developing a retail business for the past 10 years and sells fabric and other miscellaneous products. She was quite young when she started out.

A member of one of the U-IMCEC branches since 2000, Faty is requesting a loan of 400,000 francs to buy fabric and other products so that she can expand her business. This loan will allow her to offer a diverse range of items and to meet her customers' demands as the Tabaski festival approaches. Increased profit will allow her to better meet her social expenses.
