A loan of $225 helped to buy two bags of incense.


Ndèye's story

The borrower is a young, single woman who sells products for the home - notably incense. She has been doing this for almost two years, and purchases her stock at large traders in the neighbouring countries. She manages to generate a consistent monthly profit, and to support her parents in taking care of the family, as well as her two sisters who are at school. She is seeking a loan of 100,000f with UIMCEC in order to increase her stock with the purchase of two bags of incense. Her ambition is to go on business trips.
