A loan of $825 helped to expand her little eatery, where she works as a restauranteur.


Penda's story

Ms. Penda is 43 years old and lives in a district in the Senegalese capital. She has been active in the restaurant sector for several years. She manages an eatery located near a large school in the town where she lives. In addition, many local companies are found close to one another, so this client has chosen this business to satisfy an important demand for food service there. Regarding her work, she is most satisfied with being able to respond to customer demands and also to earn in income.

She has been a member of a U-IMCEC branch office since April 2011. She is requesting a loan of 400,000 francs for expanding her eatery with the aim of coping with the influx of customers becoming more and more significant.

Her goal is to develop her business and to diversify her offerings. This financing will enable her to make more profit and to rely on herself to earn a living.
