Diègane's story

Diégane is an experienced livestock raiser who began his business with next to nothing. He purchased on credit or put down a deposit with a large scale reseller and made repayments after his sales. During this time, he was not familiar with IMCEC and so could not take advantage of loans to improve his business. Diégane has more than 5 years of experience in this business and works from 9am to 7pm. With the profits he earns, he takes care of his family, puts money aside and wants to improve his home. He has another ambition in mind, which is to have a tailor shop in order to diversify his business.
