A loan of $625 helped to purchase cosmetic products and fabrics for resale.

Fatema's story

Fatema is a young businesswoman who is married and 30 years old. Her business is selling cosmetics in a local market where she has had a stand for 4 years. She is on her second loan with IMCEC; for this one, she wants to double the loan amount to increase her stock.

Fatema will use the loan to purchase beauty creams, perfumes, soaps, body lotions, and fabric. She begins her day at 10am and works until 7pm. She does not have anyone in her care and the profits from her business will allow her to improve the food conditions of her family and their living conditions.
