A loan of $1,025 helped to pay for an order of goods.

Mbery's story

Mbery is a 41-year-old woman living in Senegal. She is a host at one of the local radio stations. She also runs a retail business at the same time, where she sells dyed fabrics, jewellery, and hair weaves. She has over five years of experience with her business that she chose as an opportunity to earn a stable income. Consequently, the lucrative aspect of the business is what interests her the most.

She has been a member of one of the branches of the U-IMCEC in the village where she lives since September 2004. She has already paid back nine previous loans. She is seeking a loan of 500,000 frs to pay for an order of goods that she placed.

The profitability of her retail business from the very beginning has helped her acquire household furniture and also satisfy her own needs as well as those of her brothers and sisters.
