A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a dugout canoe.

Mame Meissa's story

Mame Meissa is a married woman who has been progressing in the fishing sector for more than 20 years. She lives in a Senegalese locale and is a member of the branch of the UIMCEC in the same zone. The income that her dugout canoes bring in allows her to take care of her personal needs and also to participate in the management of daily expenses. She is requesting a loan of 500,000 frs for the purchase of another dugout canoe with the goal of growing her income even more. In the future she wishes to become a great promoter of fishing who buys and sells fishing machines and dugout canoes.
