A loan of $975 helped to buy drinks for resale.


Marguerite's story

Marguerite is a married woman who lives in Senegal. For the past six years she has worked selling drinks. She works in her business for 14 hours per day.

Marguerite is a member of one of the branches of U-IMCEC. She has requested a loan of 500,000 francs to buy drinks, which will increase the stock she currently has available in her premises. Her goal is to increase the revenues she generates from her business, so that she can employ someone to help her with the business, pay her children's education expenses, and save some money. In the future she would like to have a large drinks store, and to sell wholesale to both retailers and the public.
