Mame Sira's story

Mame Sira lives in Senegal and has been an IMCEC member since 22 April 2011. She is 40 years old and the mother of two children, a boy and a girl. The four-year-old boy goes to Koranic school.

She has been in the haberdashery business for the past three years. Mame Sira had already received two IMCEC credit loans for haberdashery items that she repaid without difficulty.

With this loan she will buy fabrics in neighboring countries to resell in her area. Her ambition is to become a major import/export merchant, and help her husband acquire a home in the region's capital.
