Marième's story

Ms. Marieme lives in Senegal. She is a widow and lives with her family. She has been active in the business sector for over thirty years and sells secondhand clothing at the weekly markets, which take place at various locations in town.

She is a member of a U-IMCEC branch where she is requesting a loan in the amount of 500,000 francs CFA. This loan is the sixth one she has obtained from this institution. It is for purchasing used clothing for resale. Her goal is to satisfy the growing demands of her customers.

Meanwhile, through this financing, the increase in income would enable her to meet the day-to-day needs of her family and to save money. Her wish is to purchase a house and rent it out.
