Alle's story

Alle is 36 years old and lives in southern Senegal. He has been a tailor for 20 years. With this loan, he will buy a 20u sewing machine, so that he can control his stitching and enlarge his workshop. Thanks to his job as a tailor, he is able to cover the expenses of his family - which is made up of a woman and a small boy aged 2, who is in kindergarten - and pay the rent for his room and his workshop. He aims to have his own land in town. He thanks UIMCEC and Kiva.
