Janvier Thomas is a married man who lives in Senegal. He is a painter by profession, with five years of experience in his field. However, in order to earn a secondary source of reliable income, Janvier Thomas is also involved in the resale of fabric.
He is a member of one of the branches of UIMCEC and has already successfully repaid three prior loans. He is currently requesting a loan of 150,000 XOF so that he can purchase fabric for resale. The resulting increase in his income will help Janvier Thomas to better support his family and to pay for their daily living expenses.
Monsieur Janvier Thomas est un homme marié qui vit au Sénégal. Il est peintre de profession et capitalise une expérience de 5 ans dans ce domaine. Néanmoins parallèlement il pratique le commerce et la vente de tissus pour renforcer ses revenus périodiques. Il est sociétaire dans l’un des guichets de l’UIMCEC et a déjà remboursé 3 prêts antérieurs. Il sollicite un crédit de 150 000 prévu pour acheter des tissus a revendre.
