A loan of $1,200 helped to order traditional shoes to resell.


Cheikh's story

Mr. Cheikh lives in Senegal. He is a father, and he has been working in commerce for over ten years. His specialty is selling traditional shoes. With the income this business generates, he meets the needs of his family. He is a member of a U-IMCEC branch in which he has already repaid three previous loans granted to him. He is requesting a new loan of 600,000 francs CFA with the goal of bolstering his working capital, so that he may expand his product offering. Thanks to this financing, his profits will be able to grow, enabling him to improve his family's food situation and to save more money. Beyond this, he would like to have enough funds to start raising cattle in his village.
