Moustapha lives in Senegal and is 32 years old. He is single and is developing a trading business, more precisely in the sale of second-hand clothing. When he lost his job, his brother started sending him second-hand clothes. His strength lies in the fact that he sells his goods at affordable prices which are accessible to all budgets. He has been a member of one of the branches of UIMCEC since May 2011. He is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs with which he is planning to buy more goods in order to expand his business. An increase in his profits will allow him to contribute more to family expenses, since he is living in his brother's house.
