A loan of $1,000 helped to buy food products to resell.


Oumar's story

Mr. Oumar lives in Senegal. He runs a busy shop in the place where he lives. He is the father of a family, and covers his family's expenses with the income earned from selling food products. He's been a seller since 2000. He opens at 7 in the morning and closes at midnight. He's a member of one of U-IMCEC's branches, and already benefited from one loan. He's seeking once again a loan of XOF 500'000, which he intends to use to buy various food products to resell. The profits increase expected from this loan will enable him to start selling cosmetics, which his clientele is requesting, and to save more money. He wishes to become a large merchant in import-export.
