A loan of $1,025 helped to purchase two cows, to fatten and resell.

Amy's story

Amy lives in a little village about 30km from the main city. She is married and the mother of the family, and helps out with the daily expenses.

Amy has been in the business of raising and fattening cattle for more than 10 years. She works from 6am to 2pm. She raises her own cattle which she has placed not far from her home.

Amy is a long-standing client of IMCEC as she is on her fifth loan, all repaid without any difficulty. She would like a loan of 500,000 francs CFA to be able to purchase two cows, raise and fatten them, and resell them. Her wish is to have her own herd someday.
