Marie's story

Mrs Marie is a married 33 year old woman who lives in a suburb of a Senegalese city. She is a business woman who has been involved in sales of cloth, ready to wear clothing and fruits during the past 9 years. She inherited this activity from her mother who initiated her from the age of 17. She is pleased with the profits she receives, which allow her to satisfy her personal needs, and also enjoys the relationship she has with her community through this work. She has been a member of the UIMCEC bank in her community since 2002. She is asking for a loan of 500,000 francs [approximately 1050 USD] in order to purchase lambs, which she will re-sell. This financing will allow her to further develop her activity, which will have positive financial and social benefits in her life.
