A loan of $325 helped to buy fabrics to re-sell.

Mbana's story

Mbana is 48 years old and lives in Senegal. She is married and has more than 5 children. She has been working as a retailer for ten years, more specifically selling incense and fabrics (wax-print and voile). She also does embroidery. Mbana has been a member of one of U-IMCEC's offices since May 2003. She has already repaid nine previous loans. She is requesting this loan for 150,000 francs to buy fabrics to re-sell for the Tabaski holiday (Eid al-Adha). This loan will allow her to improve her income and support her children, who are in school, by paying their school fees.
