A loan of $300 helped to purchase fabric for resale.


Janvier Thomas's story

Janvier Thomas is a married man who lives in Senegal. He is a painter by profession, with five years of experience in his field. However, in order to earn a secondary source of reliable income, Janvier Thomas is also involved in the resale of fabric. He is a member of one of the branches of UIMCEC and has already successfully repaid three prior loans. He is currently requesting a loan of 150,000 XOF so that he can purchase fabric for resale. The resulting increase in his income will help Janvier Thomas to better support his family and to pay for their daily living expenses.
