Mrs. Hélène is a 47-year-old married woman who lives in Senegal. She is a merchant who has been selling second-hand clothing for over 10 years. She became a member of the U-IMCEC branch in May 2003. Her goal is to diversify her trade activity to match the needs of the population. She is seeking a loan of 300,000 francs to purchase sheep for resale. She wants to strengthen the revenue earned from her activity, especially since past revenue allowed her to renovate her home.
