A loan of $200 helped to buy groundnut paste and dried fish for resale.


Al Diouma's story

Al Diouma lives in one of Senegal's towns. She has been a trader, notably selling groundnut paste and dried fish, for more than three years, and thus has three years' experience in this field. She is married and mother to two children, aged ten and 25 years old respectively. She is a member of one of the U-IMCEC branches and is requesting a loan of 100,000 francs, with which she plans to buy groundnut paste and dried fish for resale. This loan will enable her to increase her working capital and improve her earnings.
