A loan of $825 helped to buy fabrics for sewing and resale.

Ibra's story

Ibra lives in a suburb in Senegal. He has been working as a tailor for the past fifteen years. His working day starts at 10 AM and ends at 9PM. Ibra is single and takes care of his day-to-day and rent-related expenses by himself.

In order to be able to diversify the products and services that he offers to his customers, he is requesting a loan of 400,000 francs. He will use this loan to purchase "Bazin" (damask) fabrics that he will embroider and display for sale.

His goal is to increase his regular income, which will allow him to save more money and, one day, achieve his project of opening additional sewing shops.
