A loan of $800 helped to buy fabrics for resale.


Ramata's story

Ramata lives in a town located in a Senegalese suburb. She is a domestic assistant, and has also worked in retail for the past two years. She is also a member of the UIMCEC branch in her area.

The income that Ramata earns from her business allows her to pay her share of the family expenses. She has already repaid her two previous loans, and has requested a loan of 400,000 francs. She plans to use the money to buy fabrics and food products for resale, so that she can develop her retail business and have more financial income.
