A loan of $600 helped to buy a second sewing machine.

Idikha's story

Madame Idikha lives in Senegal. She is married and has worked in the artisanal sector for more than three years. She is a seamstress and it is thanks to the profits that her business brings her that she contributes to the management of her family's everyday expenses. She is a member of an UIMCEC branch, where she is asking for a loan of 300,000 XOF. She plans to buy a sewing machine and fabric for her business. This loan would thus allow her to improve her business's productivity. In doing this, the growth of her profits will help her to participate more in providing for her family's household expenses and to save money. In hopes of developing her business even more, in the future she projects growing her studio and increasing her number of employees.
