A loan of $1,000 helped to renovate her restaurant.

Ramatoulaye's story

Ms. Ramatoulaye lives in Senegal with her family. She is divorced and pays for the food, electricity, and schooling costs for her children. She has been running a restaurant for over ten years and has a positive impact on meeting family needs, thanks to the income she earns.

She is a member of a U-IMCEC branch and is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs for renovating her restaurant to make it more attractive and welcoming. She has already paid back a previous loan with this institution. With this financing, her goal is to make her business more profitable, so as to do better in meeting her children's schooling costs and also to improve her savings, so she can renovate her house. Her family can then really thrive. Beyond this, she would like to expand her restaurant.
