A loan of $600 helped to purchase 'thioups' to sell.

Mberry's story

Ms. MBERRY is an unmarried woman who has been living in Senegal for a long time. She has been active in commerce for ten years selling 'thioups' or dyed 'boubous' (long flowing outfits). The income her business brings in enables her to cover some of her needs, such as transportation costs. She is a member of a U-IMCEC branch where she has already repaid ten previous loans. She is currently requesting a loan of 300,000 francs for purchasing 'thioups' to sell. Her goal is to expand her business to make it more profitable. She plans to diversify the merchandise she sells with the increase in profits from selling perfumes. Thus, she would like to save some money in order to obtain a plot of land in the future.
