A loan of $500 helped to buy dyed fabric and foodstuffs for the preparation of couscous (4 barrels of mil [African cereal], corn and firewood).


Mbougane's story

Madam Mbougane is a 56 year old woman, married and a mother. She lives several kilometers away from the branch. She has advanced in the sale of couscous and dyed fabric and has more than 10 years experience. She works half days from the afternoon until night. She has benefited from 3 loans to strengthen her commercial business and she has never had any difficulties in repayment. Madam Mbougane needs this loan to buy foodstuffs for the preparation of couscous (4 barrels of mil [African cereal], corn and firewood).

With the profits from her business, she supports her husband with the daily expenses and paying for electricity. Madam Mbougane hopes to diversify her business with the financial support of the UIMCEC.
