A loan of $600 helped to renovate her hair salon.


Mame Coumba's story

Mame Coumba is a married woman who lives in Senegal. She works in the services sector. A hairdresser, she has over ten years of experience in this business. She is an associate of one of the U-IMCEC branch offices in the town where she lives. She has already prepaid a previous loan and is requesting a loan of 300,000 for fixing up her hair salon. The revenues her business brings in enable her to support her three children in addition to covering the rent for her salon, where she does business. This financing will help her to draw in more customers, increase her revenues, and cope better with her day-to-day expenses. Her greatest dream is to have a larger hair salon in the area.
