Abou
Mr. Abou is 34 years old. He is unmarried and has worked as a tailor for 12 years. His brother was responsible for his interest in the tailoring profession, which is why he chose to pursue it. What pleases him most is the ability to form relationships with his customers and learn about their tastes, as well as the significant income he realizes. He has been a member of one of the local branches of U-IMCEC for five years. He has already repaid five previous loans. He is seeking a loan of 200,000 Frs to buy linen, which will be used to make ready-to-wear clothing that he is going to sell. The increase in his profits will allow him to better meet his familial obligations.
