A loan of $800 helped to purchase broiler chickens, jewelry and fabric.

Fama's story

Fama is 45 years old and married with one child who is ten years of age. She has been a merchant for more than ten years. Fama is very active throughout the day. Her products for sale currently include broiler chickens, jewelry and fabric.

Fama is a newly registered client of IMCEC, and has only been a member since March of 2013. She is seeking a loan of 400,000 FCFA in order to purchase dyed fabrics.

With the income she earns through her business, Fama can help her husband with the daily household expenses. She is also the one who pays for the education fees of their child. Fama hopes to someday open a canteen and expand her business to include the sale of shoes and other varieties of fabric.
