Fatou's story

Fatou is 38 years old and lives in Senegal. She is actively involved in selling food products at her local market. This is an activity she has chosen out of necessity, in order to have an income. She has been a member of one of UIMCEC branches since 2006, and has already repaid three previous loans. She is requesting a loan of 150,000 francs for the purchase of food products. This will allow her to increase her stock of merchandise and to meet her customers' demand. Thanks to this loan, she will also be able to increase her profits, better provide for herself, and help her husband.
