A loan of $1,000 helped to buy clothing for resale.

Aminata's story

Mrs. Aminata is 42 years old and she lives in Senegal. She is a married mother of two children aged 8 and 12. She has been working in trade for over ten years. She sells clothing, an activity chosen out of passion but also to earn income and to support herself. Consequently, the ability to generate profits is what she finds most appealing in her activity.

She became a member of a U-IMCEC branch in 2002 and has already repaid six previous loans.

She is seeking a loan of 500,000F to replenish her stock of clothing. An increase in profits will help her to improve her family’s lifestyle.
