A loan of $225 helped buy fabric to be resold to her customers.


Penda's story

Mrs. Penda is a woman who is active in the marketing of fabrics. She has a stall in the communal market and has 10 years' experience in the business.

She is married and the mother of five children. She helps her husband in managing daily expenditures and pays for her children's school fees.

Mrs. Penda needs this 100,000 XOF credit loan to increase revenue and buy fabrics she then resells at the market. She starts her day at 9 am to finish at 6 pm.

In the future she wants to increase revenues with the help of IMCEC, so she can acquire a large store and develop a monopoly over the sales of fabric in her district.
