Siny's story

Siny is a 27-year old woman who is divorced and lives in Senegal. She is a trader and in particular sells clothes, shoes, local juices and various other new products which appear on the market. She chose this activity in order not to remain idle and to make some money to provide for her own needs. She is above all interested in the lucrative aspect of the activity. She has been a member of one of the branches of UIMCEC since February 2004 and has already repaid seven previous loans. She is requesting a loan of 300,000 francs to buy sheets, sea food, palm oil and shea oil, which she will then resell. She would like to diversify the products she sells. The loans she is granted consititute a significant financial aid for her since they have allowed her to buy a refrigeratoir which enables her to sell juice and ice-cream.
