Mame Penda's story

Ms. Mame Penda is a 56-year-old married woman who lives in Senegal. She has been working in the profession of teaching for over 25 years. She chose this profession due to the quality of education she received and because she wanted to pass down knowledge to children who are school-aged. To her, education is the only guarantee for success.

She has been a long-time associate of a U-IMCEC branch since May 2003. She has already paid back seven previous loans. She is requesting a loan of 350,000 francs for buying provisions that will help to ensure a supply of food at home during her absence. This loan will help with stabilizing her family in life.
