Chérif Dié's story

Chérif Dié is a married carpenter with 2 dependent children. He buys tree trunks from woodcutters and makes sculptures, mortarboards and other tools which he then sells at the local market. His income allows him to take care of his little family and cover his own needs.

Chérif Dié is requesting a loan of 200 000 francs from UIMCEC to boost his working capital. He will use the money to buy 4 tree trunks and some varnish. He would eventually like export his products to sub-regional and western markets.
