A loan of $575 helped to buy clothing and perfume for resale.


Mamadou's story

Mr. Mamadou lives in Senegal. He is a traveling salesman offering a variety of goods. He travels regularly to a country bordering Senegal to acquire grooming items and fabrics for his customers. The income earned through this activity allows him to help with the household expenses (paying for tuition and improving the family’s lifestyle). He has 12 years of experience in this activity.

He is a member of the local U-IMCEC branch where he has already repaid two previous loans.

He is seeking a loan of 300,000F to buy clothing, perfume and cosmetic products needed to meet customer demand. His goal is to improve his activity and bolster his income.
