A loan of $200 helped to buy percale, bazins and thread to make bed sheets for sale.


Maimouna's story

Maimouna, age 37, has been making bed sheets for ten years. She is a single woman without children. She is a steady member of the local IMCEC branch, now on her third loan cycle. She is seeking 100,000F CFAF to buy supplies such as thread and percale to sew bed sheets for sale on the market. To make one sheet, she requires some thread and seven meters of bazin and/or percale, depending on the customer’s preference.

Maimouna has no debts. She strives to improve her business and bolster her working capital, which is why she relies on the support of the IMCEC.
