Fatou's story

Mrs. Fatou is a seamstress by trade. She is a 43-year-old widow with children. This first loan will allow her to buy thread and fabrics to make clothing for sale. With her merchandise in high demand in her neighborhood, she needs financial assistance from IMCEC to satisfy her customers. Mrs. Fatou doesn’t have any debts. She strives to diversify her products and services. In the future, she would like to increase her working capital to better meet customer demand.
