Sala's story

Sala lives in Senegal. She is 45 years old, married and the mother of 2 children aged 5 and 14 years old. She was originally a restaurateur, but for the past 20 years has been selling diverse products such as veils and torches. She has an affinity for sales and likes running a profitable business.

She has been a member of a UIMCEC branch since November 2007 and is requesting a loan of 50 000 francs so that she can buy veils and other items to resell to her customers. She plans on strengthening her business and increasing her profits, which she will use to improve her family's living conditions.
