A loan of $625 helped to purchase sewing supplies to resell.


Ousmane's story

Mr. Ousmane live in Senegal. He is married and has chosen to work in commerce to support himself. Basically, he has a store selling sewing supplies that he has been running for six years. With what he earns, he manages to cover his lease payments, as well as his personal needs. He is a member of a U-IMCEC branch where he is requesting his sixth loan in the amount of 300,000 francs CFA. The goal of his loan is to purchase sewing items with the aim of increasing his store inventory. He starts his workday at 9:00 in the morning and finishes at 6:00 PM. Increasing his profits will enable him to do better supporting himself [and obtaining] sufficient inventory. His future plan is to bolster his business by establishing other stores selling sewing supplies.
