He has been developing a tailoring business since 1993 and manages a workshop in the town where he lives. He makes mens' and womens' clothing. He chose this business since he had a passion for it, and his interest is in the beautiful work it involves and the lucrative aspect of it. He has been a member of one of the branches of U-IMCEC (a Senegalese association of mutual savings and loans institutions) since October 2009. He is requesting a loan of 200,000 francs which he will use partly to settle an electricity bill and partly to buy trimmings and equipment which will allow him to make up ready-to-wear clothes for resale. This loan will allow him to increase his profits and improve his family's well-being.
