Aminata's story

Ms. Aminata lives in Senegal. She is married and has been active in the commercial sector for over twenty years. She specializes in selling brooms, palm oil, dried fish, and smoked fish. This business enables her, thanks to the profits generated, to help manage her family's day-to-day expenses and food situation. She capitalizes on over twenty years of experience in this business.

Before, she had obtained six loans from her U-IMCEC branch, where she is a member and which she has completely repaid. She is requesting a new loan in the amount of 200,000 francs CFA for purchasing the products she sells. With the intention of developing her business, she has need of these funds to achieve the satisfaction of her customers' growing demands. Thus, increasing her revenues will provide the chance to diversify her product offer. Her future plans still include boosting her business by opening a store for displaying her products.
