Mame Mbissine's story

Mame Mbisssine lives in Senegal with her family. She is married and actively involved in retail, having just started selling bags and shoes. She is a client of the UIMCEC and is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs to buy some goods that she will resell in order to develop her business.

Mame Mbissine would like to further diversify the goods that she sells in order to meet her customers' expectations.

This loan may help her to increase her earnings, which will in turn help her to save more money and to be better prepared in case of unforeseeable expenses. In the future she would like to expand her activity to the point where she can hire one employee.
