Mame Penda's story

Mrs Mame Penda is 43 years old. She lives in Senegal and works in catering (she sells lunch and dinner).She started her business serving snacks to her clients. Subsequently her customers demonstrated the need to buy lunch and dinner from her too. What interest her most in her commerce are the financial flow and her customers’ satisfaction. She has been a member of one of the branches of the U-IMCEC since November 2003. She requests a loan of 150 000 Frs. for the purchase of a stock of products that she uses for the preparation of the meals that she sells in order to sidestep inflation and maximise her profits. The profits made with her previous loans have enabled her to purchase her own freezer.
