A loan of $200 helped to purchase cosmetics to sell.


Aida's story

Our borrower is named Aida; she is 28 years old and has been running a small business selling cosmetics for just one year. She began with the support of her husband, who gave her 50,000 CFA francs as start-up capital. She has just sought a loan of 100,000 CFA francs from UIMCEC in order to purchase perfume, body lotion, and pomade. Aida does not have any dependents; it is her husband who manages the family. In the future, Aida hopes to open a boutique selling cosmetics in the neighborhood where she lives.
