A loan of $525 helped to buy a sewing machine.

Moussa's story

Mr. Moussa lives in Senegal. He is married and for more than 15 years, he's been working as a tailor to earn a living. This gives him the opportunity to provide for most of his family's needs.

He is a member of the local branch of Kiva's partner, U-IMCEC, from which he already obtained and repaid five loans. He's now seeking a new loan of XOF 250'000 to buy a sewing machine, in order to expand his business.

Thanks to this loan, he hopes to increase the income he earns through his business. This will enable him to bolster his savings and improve the standard of living of his family.

In the future, he intends to open a large workshop in order to realize his dream of becoming a great stylist.
