A loan of $300 helped to buy fabrics to make apparel for sale.


Bocar's story

Mr. Bocar is a married man who lives in Senegal with his family. He is a tailor, a profession that allows him to earn the revenue needed to support his family. For the past three years, he has been making apparel that he sells to the population of his district. He is a member of the local U-IMCEC branch, where he is seeking a loan of 150,000 francs. He plans to use this credit to purchase fabrics that he will use to make a selection of ready-to-wear apparel for sale.

This loan will help him to expand his business activity by providing ongoing support for his determination to succeed. As a result, he will be able to save more money and the increased profits will enable him to further diversify the various styles of apparel that he sews. To help expand his activity, he plans to travel to the sub-region to purchase fabrics.
