A loan of $300 helped to buy a serger sewing machine for her business.

Ndoumbé's story

Mrs. Ndoumbé has been a seamstress for over ten years already. She is 44 years old and lives with her children. Ndoumbé is married, but her husband is currently in Switzerland. This does not stop her from being active and from managing her household while waiting for her husband to send her money for everyday expenses.
She rents a shop, in which she set up two sewing machines. She is currently on her fourth loan with IMCEC and is requesting an amount of 150,000 XOF to purchase a serger to strengthen her production. She has customers, but if she does not have the necessary equipment, customers might go elsewhere.
Her expenses are limited to the rental of her shop ; her husband takes care of all other expenses.
In the future, she would like to diversify her business and to sell beauty products.
