A loan of $125 helped to buy clothing to resell.


Ndeye Astou's story

Ms. Ndeye Astou is 31 years old and unmarried. She has been working in fashion design for over ten years. Concurrently, she is employed as a sales rep in a district store in her town. She chose fashion design out of passion; she chose business to support herself. Making beautiful "boubous" (long, flowing outfits) is very interesting to her, as well as making a profit.

She has been a member of a U-IMCEC branch office since August 2011. She is requesting the amount of 50,000 francs for buying some clothing she will resell. Thus she wants to bolster her stock of clothing to develop her business further. Her goal is to increase her profits in order to do better supporting herself.
