A loan of $575 helped to stock up on secondhand clothing for business purposes.

Rokhaya's story

Ms. Rokhaya lives in Senegal. She is married and is the breadwinner, who supports two children, aged 9 and 12 years old. She has been working in the commercial sector for over thirty years and sells secondhand clothing in front of her home.

She is a member of the U-IMCEC branch office in the town where she lives and is requesting a loan of 300,000 francs for stocking up on bales of used clothing for resale. She has already repaid six previous loans in the aforementioned institution. Her goal is to increase her working capital through this financing and to develop her business further. Thus, she will be able to do better in covering family expenses and improving her family's living conditions.

In the future, she would like to have a large store for selling secondhand and ready-to-wear clothing.
