A loan of $1,000 helped to repair one of her shops.


Fatou's story

Fatou is a widow, mother of two children, who lives in Senegal. Her main activity is to rent some shops that are part of her house. She chose this activity because the opportunity presented itself, given the location of her house. This activity, which is almost free of regular expenses, constitutes an important source of profits for her.

Fatou is a member of the local UIMCEC branch and she is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs to repair one of her shops, currently in poor condition. This loan will allow her to maintain, each month, her current income level.
