A loan of $825 helped to purchase a dining hall.


Awa Faye's story

Madame Awa Faye is a married 39 year-old. She lives in a village in Senegal and has worked in catering for over ten years. She chose her trade opportunistically. The things she likes most about her work are the contact she has with customers, the services she offers and the revenue her business generates. She has been a member of her local U-IMCEC division since November 2007. She has already repaid three loans and is seeking a 400 000 frs loan in order to purchase a dining hall. Her previous loans have enabled her to purchase tools and equipment that have enabled her to run her business effectively.
