A loan of $500 helped to buy fish and vegetables to resell.


Kany's story

Kany lives in Senegal and is married. She has been selling fish and vegetables for three years. The earnings from this business allow her to contribute to the support of her family's needs. She is a member of one of the local branches of UIMCEC, where she is asking for a loan of 250,000 francs CFA so that she can procure some fish and vegetables to resell to her customers. This loan will help her increase her business capital and increase the quantity of products that she offers her customers in the market. An increase in profits will help her ensure the long term payment of her children's school fees and allow her to save money. In the future, she hopes to develop an advantage in her business.
