Marietou's story

This borrower is a married woman and the mother of a four-year-old child. With the support of her husband who is a teacher, she bought a refrigerator which has allowed her to go into the business of selling ice cream. She also sells perfumes on credit. Her income allows her not only to improve the quality of food for her family but also to meet her own needs. She is requesting a loan of 100,000 frs. through l’UIMCEC to buy three cases of perfume along with sugar and agricultural products for making ice cream. Her ambition is to open a small restaurant at the main market where she lives.
