Diègane
Diégane is an experienced livestock raiser who began his business with next to nothing. He purchased on credit or put down a deposit with a large scale reseller and made repayments after his sales. During this time, he was not familiar with IMCEC and so could not take advantage of loans to improve his business.

Diégane has more than 5 years of experience in this business and works from 9am to 7pm. With the profits he earns, he takes care of his family, puts money aside and wants to improve his home. He has another ambition in mind, which is to have a tailor shop in order to diversify his business.
View original language description ↓
Monsieur Diegane est un éleveur avéré qui a démarré son activité en partant presque de rien. Il achetait à crédit ou donnait un acompte chez un vendeur à grande échelle et après ses ventes, il remboursait. En ce temps, il ne connaissait pas l’IMCEC et ne pouvait donc pas bénéficier de crédit pour améliorer son activité.
Diègane a une expérience de plus de 5 ans dans ce domaine d’activité et reste actif de 9h à 19h. Avec les bénéfices acquis, il s’occupe de sa famille, met de l’argent de côté et veut rénover sa maison.
Diègane a une autre ambition en tête, celui d’avoir un atelier de couture afin de diversifier son activité.
