Penda Diène's story

Penda Diène is 52 years old and lives in Senegal. She is married and the mother of 8 children aged between 21 and 35. She has been selling couscous since 1989 and chose the work because she found she had an affinity for it. She also enjoys running a profitable business.

Penda Diène is a member of her local UIMCEC branch and is requesting a loan of 500 000 francs so that she can buy the kitchen utensils that she needs to prepare her couscous. She would like to develop and expand her business in order to increase her profits, which she will use to improve her family's quality of life.
