A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fabric with which to make clothing for resale.


Babacar's story

Babacar is a married tailor who has been in his line of work for over 10 years. He makes and sells ready-to-wear clothing. He spends 11 hours a day working. He is a member of a UIMCEC branch and is requesting a loan of 500 000 francs so that he can buy fabrics and trimmings with which to make clothing to sell for the Tabaski festival. An increase in his income would allow him to better cover his expenses (rent, electricity, salaries, daily expenses), to build savings and to improve his family's food conditions. Babacar would eventually like to expand his workshop in order to better develop his business.
