Yoro's story

Mr. Yoro is a young married Senegalese active in the sewing industry. The income generated by his activity enables him to cover rental costs, pay the bills and feed his family. He is a member of one of the UIMCEC branches where he is requesting a loan of 300,000 francs. With this financing he intends to buy a sewing machine to carry on his business. He wants to make his business more profitable so he can better support his expenses and at the same time improve his family's nutritional requirements. In the future, he wants to dispose of a plot of land.
