Lamine's story

Lamine is 32 years old and lives very close to the branch. He is a single man who began sewing at a very early age and he has his own workshop which he rents for 20,000 francs a month. He is requesting a loan of 200,000 francs to buy fabrics that he will make up to sell afterwards. Thanks to this loan he will be able to generate more income and thus be able to save money and satisfy his own needs as well as those of his parents. One day he enviseages becoming the owner of a large sewing workshop, where he will be one of the best in his field.
