Sidy's story

Monsieur Sidy lives in a Senegalese suburb. He has worked in the service sector and had a carpentry business for 18 years. His work day starts everyday at 7am and ends at 8pm. He is married and father of a family. He provides for the daily expenses of his household thanks to the profits his business generates. He is a member of his local UIMCEC branch and is asking for a loan of 250,000XOF to be used to buy wood to make furniture, which he is going to resell to improve his profit level. His goal is to improve the condition of his family's diet. His future ambition is to acquire several carpentry studios.
