Mr. Assane lives in Senegal. He is married and manages a shop. He chose to work in the scrap metal business 10 years ago in order to support his family. He is a member of l’U-IMCEC where he is requesting a loan of 300,000 francs in order to develop his business activity. His goal is to build up his stock of iron and to increase his financial resources. Indeed, this loan could give him the opportunity to pay his children’s school fees and to improve the diet and living conditions of his family. If he has the means, he would like to improve his family’s home with the income from his business. Also, his plan for the future is to have several locations for collecting scrap metal and to be able to meet his needs independently with his own capital.

Il est membre d’un des guichets de l’U-IMCEC où il sollicite un crédit d’un montant de 300.000 francs pour développer son activité de commerce.L'objectif visé est le renforcement de son stock de férail et l'augmentation de ses ressources financières. En effet, ce financement pourrait lui donner l'opportunité d'assurer les frais scolaires de ses enfants et d'améliorer les conditions de vie alimentaires de sa famille. Si les moyens le lui permettent , il souhaite réfectionner le domicile familial a travers les revenus que lui procurent son activité.
