A loan of $100 helped to buy charcoal for resale.


Maimouna's story

Madame Maimouna is a married woman who lives in Senegal. She has been working in commerce for 20 years. Her activity is selling charcoal and vegetables. She has already reimbursed three prior loans at the branch office of UIMCEC where she is a member.

She is asking for another loan of 50,000 francs to use to buy charcoal and vegetables for resale. This financial support will help her to develop her commercial activity and grow her profit so that she can feed her family better. Her concern is to manage to improve her family's nutrition and in future, get a roof.
