Dibor's story

Dibor lives in Senegal, is married, and has two jobs. In addition to working as a teacher, she also works selling fabrics: she has been teaching for the past four years, and has seven years’ experience buying and selling fabrics.

Dibor is a member of one of the UIMCEC branches, where she has requested a loan of 150,000 francs CFA. With her financing, she plans to buy fabrics which she will then sell on to her customers. She also wants to be able to diversify the goods that she sells, moving into the sale of shoes and women’s toiletries. With the growth in her profits, she will be able to make a better contribution to managing her family’s daily expenses. In the future, she plans to develop her business even more by expanding, and she also plans to create a private school.
