A loan of $775 helped to buy an embroidery machine and sewing items.


Clément's story

Clément lives with his hairdresser wife and their only child, who is 6 years of age and at school. He learned how to sew and, at the end of his apprenticeship, opened his own workshop in 2006. He then specialized in embroidery.

Clément’s customer base grows with each passing day, and demand is becoming higher. To better meet his customers’ needs, he has requested a first loan from WAGES to buy an embroidery machine and sewing items. Clément would like to use his profits to buy sewing items and jacquard for resale, as well as to provide for his family’s basic needs. He has six apprentices in his workshop.
