Les Intimes Group's story

Siaka, aged 53, is the married father of six children. For twenty years, he has been in the sewing business. He needs a loan to pay for sewing supplies for his work. His workshop is located in a good spot. He is known for his experience. He is also respectful and accommodating to his customers. In addition, he does good work and satisfies his customers. And so his business is doing well.

From his sales, he will have earnings enabling him to save some money for taking care of his family and also continuing in his work. He is now on his 3rd ACFIME loan contract, and the repayments has been made normally.
