Clément
Clément lives with his hairdresser wife and their only child, who is 6 years of age and at school. He learned how to sew and, at the end of his apprenticeship, opened his own workshop in 2006. He then specialized in embroidery.

Clément’s customer base grows with each passing day, and demand is becoming higher. To better meet his customers’ needs, he has requested a first loan from WAGES to buy an embroidery machine and sewing items. Clément would like to use his profits to buy sewing items and jacquard for resale, as well as to provide for his family’s basic needs. He has six apprentices in his workshop.

Il s’est plus spécialisé dans la broderie. Ces clients augmentent de jour en jour et la demande devient de plus en plus croissantes. Pour encore mieux répondre à ses clients, il sollicite de WAGES un premier prêt afin d’acheter de la machine à broder et des produits de mercerie.
