A loan of $700 helped to buy aloe vera products for resale.


Aminata's story

Aminata lives in Senegal. She is married and has been selling kitchen dishes and aloe vera products since 2006.

She has already obtained a previous loan from one of the branches of the UIMCEC where she is a client. Once again, she is requesting a loan of 350,000 CFA francs, which she is planning to use to buy aloe vera products for resale.

By strengthening her working capital, she will be able to expand her activity and to increase the financial resources which she generates through her business. In this manner, she will be able to continue to cover her part of the family expenses (children's school fees and domestic help's salary) and to save more money.

Aminata's ambition is to become an important seller of aloe vera products within her country.
