A loan of $325 helped to pay for her journey to Mecca.

Oureye's story

Mrs Oureye is 55 years old and married. She has been a merchant for three years selling lollipops, local juice and ice cream. She chose this activity because of its appropriateness and because she didn't want to lead an idle life. She has been a member of one of the branches of the microfinance institution U-IMCEC since May 2003. She applies for a loan of 150,000 CFA francs to make up her savings to pay for her journey to Mecca without dipping into her working capital.
