A loan of $650 helped to buy a new sewing machine..


Babacar's story

This borrower is a married tailor and the father of four children. He has been in his trade for almost 15 years. He started out with only one sewing machine and has worked long and hard to acquire a workshop that is well-located and three sewing machines. His clientele has grown a lot and that brings him in income that allows him to support his family. He is requesting a loan of 300,000 francs to buy a new, more modern and more efficient sewing machine. His ambition is to start up courses to teach young people the tailor's trade.
