Néné WOME, clothing seller on the Grand Yoff market thanks to MicroCred
At age 54, Néné Wome works in the large working-class market of Grand Yoff, on the outskirts of Dakar. She has been selling children's outfits on a small stand next to the road for 8 years. Néné buys merchandise in Dakar or Nouakchott. She lets it be known that as a widow with four children who are not yet married she provides for the needs of the whole family.
Néné Wome already took out her first loan of FCFA 150,000 (EUR 230) with MicroCred, a working capital loan that enabled her to increase her stock. She also diversified the range of goods she was offering by proposing local fabrics known as "wax" and "bazin". The higher revenues generated by her activity allowed Néné to save more. And with four children at home, she knows how important it is to plan ahead and be prepared for the unexpected.
Néné Wome is very happy with her first collaboration with MicroCred. Her Loan Officer, who has followed her file from the beginning, is a true partner in her confidence and knows how to give her advice when she needs it. This warm and reassuring welcome, found at the heart of MicroCred, pushed Néné to ask for a second loan, for FCFA 3,000,000 (EU R 4,500). She suffers from the pollution directly emitted from the cars and taxis that pass by and wishes to open her boutique inside the market to be able to have a true store in which to expose her articles.
