Serigne Mor Sylla's story

Mr. Serigne Mor Sylla lives in Senegal. He is a father with a family and is active in the transportation domain. He is a cart driver, and he works in commerce at the same time. He sells millet, animal feed, corn, and other local products. He has two years of experience in this commerce business. He is a partner at a U-IMCEC branch, where he is requesting a loan in the amount of 250,000 francs CFA. His goal is to develop his commerce through increasing his stock of products. Thus, he will be able to diversify the products he offers to his customers while selling brooms and karkadé (products made with dried hibiscus flowers).

Increasing his profits will enable him to do better in covering his home's day-to-day expenses, as well as paying the bills. Also, with the increased revenues, he envisions improving his family's food situation. He aspires to become a major merchant in the future.
