Fatou Diop
Fatou is a married woman who lives in Senegal. She has been an active merchant for the past five years. Fatou specializes in the sale of cosmetics and used clothing. This business allows her to earn enough money so that she can take care of her children.

Fatou is a member at one of the branches of UIMCEC and has obtained three prior loans. She is currently seeking a new loan of 100,000 francs CFA that she will use to purchase her retail products. Fatou wants to build her working capital and expand her merchant activity.

The increase in her income would allow Fatou the opportunity to save more money and progressively increase her working capital. Fatou's next project is to open a store where she can display her retail goods.

Mme Fatou est une femme marié qui habite au Sénégal. Elle s’active dans le commerce depuis 5 ans. Elle est spécialisée dans la vente de produits cosmétiques et d’habits de friperie. Cette activité lui lui procure des bénéfices lui permettant de prendre soins de ses enfants. Membre de l’un des guichets de l’U-IMCEC où elle a déjà obtenu 03 prêts antérieurs, elle sollicite a nouveau un montant de 100.000 francs CFA qui sera destiné a l’achat des produits qu’elle commercialise. Elle souhaite en effet renforcer son fonds de roulement et développer son activité de commerce. L’augmentation des profits qu’elle gagne lui donnerait l’opportunité d’épargner plus d’argent pour renforcer progressivement son fond de roulement. Son futur projet est d’ouvrir un magasin où elle pourra exposer les produits de son commerce.
