A loan of $800 helped to buy ready-to-wear clothing for sale in his shop.


Cheikh's story

Cheikh is a young man of 34, married and the father of two children aged 5 and 4. He lives in the city centre, where he also carries out his business selling ready-to-wear clothing (t-shirts, caps, jeans, children's outfits). He has been doing this for 11 years. He has a shop which he opened with his own resources. He just needs a loan of 400,000 CFA to plug some gaps in his existing product range. He meets his childrens' and his wife's living expenses. In the future, he wants to increase the size of his shopfloor.
