A loan of $1,050 helped to buy hair products for resale.


Fatou's story

Fatou is 43 years old and lives in Senegal. She runs a hair salon and is also a small retailer. She is also active in the theatre. Fatou chose her line of work because she felt an affinity for it. What she loves the most is giving her students a good foundation of knowledge.

She has been a member of her local UIMCEC branch since March 2006 and is requesting a loan of 500 000 francs so that she can buy hair extensions, hair weaves and other products to sell to her customers. She uses the profits from her business to support her family and modernise her hair salon.
