A loan of $525 helped to buy a sewing machine.

Aida Fary's story

Madame Aida lives in Senegal. She is 43 years old. She is married and manages a sewing shop at a market not far from where she lives. Two apprentices work with her. She began working at a business in her area which showed her that this was profitable work. During the religious festivities her work increases considerably. She has been a member of l’U-IMCEC since November 2006 and has already taken out three previous loans. She is requesting a loan of 250,000 frs to buy a more sophisticated sewing machine. Her goal is to make her work more profitable and maximize her income to better meet her personal needs.
