Ms. Aminata is a widow who lives in Senegal. She is active in commerce and has acquired five years of experience in it. Her business involves purchasing fabrics to resell to her customers in the neighborhoods where she lives. She has never had a loan from the U-IMCEC branch where she is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs for renovating the roof of her house, which she wants to rent out. The revenues from this project will consequently enable her to continue renovating the whole house, which is her main concern.

La dame Aminata est une veuve qui habite au Sénégal. Elle s’active dans le secteur du commerce et y a acquis une expérience de 5 ans. Son activité consiste à acheter des tissus pour les revendre à ses clients dans les quartiers de sa zone d’habitation. Elle n’a jamais bénéficié de crédit au sein du guichet de l’UIMCEC ou elle sollicite un crédit de 500 000 prévu pour la réfection de la toiture de sa maison qu’elle veut donner en location. Les revenus de ce projet par conséquent lui permettront de pouvoir continuer la réfection de l’intégralité de la maison, ce qui est son principal souci.

Additional Information


This loan is administered by UIMCEC, a Kiva Field Partner in Senegal since 2008. UIMCEC is a government-regulated microfinance institution whose mission is to improve the revenue and well-being of families through access to financial services, allowing principally women and young adult micro-entrepreneurs living in rural and semi-rural areas to develop their revenue-generating businesses and supporting them in becoming financially self-sufficient.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
