A loan of $1,000 helped to buy vegetables for resale.


Khady's story

Mrs. Khady is a married woman who lives in Senegal. She has been working in trade since 2005, and is currently selling vegetables. She is a member of the local U-IMCEC branch where she is seeking a loan of 500,000 francs CFA to strengthen her working capital. She plans to use the funds to stock up on vegetables for resale.

The additional profits earned through this funding will help her to improve her family’s food situation and to bolster her savings in case of unexpected circumstances. Her goal for the future is to open a store to sell her merchandise.
