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.
Monsieur Abou est âgé de 34 ans. Il est célibataire et exerce l’activité de tailleur depuis 12 ans. C’est son frère qui lui a fait aimer le métier de tailleur ce qui justifie son choix pour cette activité. Ce qui lui plait le plus ce sont les connaissances, le gout aux contacts et les chiffres d’affaires importants qu’il réalise. Il est membre d’un des guichets de l’U-IMCEC depuis 5 ans. Il a déjà remboursé 5 prêts antérieurs. Il sollicite un crédit de 200 000 frs prévu pour l’achat de tissus lins qui seront utilisés pour confectionner des prêts a porter qu’il va commercialiser. La valorisation de ses bénéfices lui permettra de mieux faire face à ses obligations familiales.
