A loan of $1,075 helped to cover expenses related to her trip to the Holy Place.


Dioma's story

Dioma is a 60-year-old widow who lives in Senegal. She has grandchildren and she has a small business selling incense and other miscellaneous products. She has been a member of one of U-MICEC's offices since April 2005. She has not received any previous loans.

Dioma plans to make a pilgrimage to Mecca this year. For this reason, she is requesting a loan for 500,000 francs to put together with some money she already has to cover the expenses that she faces. This loan could contribute towards improving the social status of the borrower.
