Cheikh Massamba is a clothier by trade who has business in this business for twelve years already. He used to work with his own funds until now, so he would like to sign a loan for 100,000 francs CFA in order to round out his money for acquiring a sewing machine, which would cost 425,000 francs. He is 32 years old, married, and the father of nice little girl. As for expenses, he takes care of them and also pays the electricity bill in his workshop.
