A loan of $600 helped to buy fabrics and ready-to-wear apparel for resale.


Fatimata's story

Mrs. Fatimata, age 42, is a divorced mother of four children aged 12 to 20. She has been selling fabrics and ready-to-wear apparel for six years.

A long-time member of the local IMCEC branch, Fatimata is seeking a 5th loan to buy new merchandise for the holidays and to fill an order.

Fatimata doesn’t have any expenses. She works hard to improve her activity, and hopes someday to open a ready-to-wear store.
