A loan of $500 helped to buy wood to make and sell furniture.


Souleymane's story

This is a very ambitious young carpenter, born August 2, 1984, who has more than ten years of experience in his field. His workshop is located in his neighborhood and four apprentices help him with his tasks.

His customer base extends to other regions as he regularly receives orders from other geographic areas. He is planning to upgrade some of his tools and, additionally, to buy enough wood to meet his orders.

Through partnership with our institution, his future plan is to make his business more professional and to have better visibility. He would also like to be able to help his mother with the household expenses.
