A loan of $600 helped to purchase art objects to sell.


Marie Louise's story

Ms. Marie Louise is a married woman who lives near the U-IMCEC branch where she is a member. She has been active in the commerce sector for five years and sells art objects. The income her business brings in enables her to cover her transport expenses. She has already repaid two previous loans. She is requesting a loan of 300,000 francs for purchasing art objects she is going to resell. She would like to develop her business further. Thus, the profits earned will help her to diversify the products she sells (to buy and sell fabrics). For the future, she plans to obtain a stall for selling goods.
