A loan of $1,000 helped to renovate the roofing of her home.


Bineta's story

Binta lives in Sénégal. She is married and has been a small trader for over twenty years. She is specialised in the sale of local cereals, which earns her sufficient income to meet her own needs. She is requesting a loan in the amount of 500,000 FCFA from her local U-IMCEC office, of which she is a member. She requires this loan to completely redo the roofing of her home. Completing this project will allow her to reduce her worries about improving her family's living standards. In fact, this worry will only be fully eliminated when she has completed the next project; recovering the floor of her home.
