Abdoulaye's story

Abdoulaye lives in Senegal. He is married and has been in business for 6 years. He sells ready to wear clothing. With the help of the earnings from his business, Abdoulaye is able to support his household's needs, such as rent and electricity bills. He has not previously had any loans from the branch of UIMCEC where he is a member. Currently Abdoulaye is requesting a loan of 100,000 francs CFA in order to purchase ready to wear clothes which will increase his stock of merchandise to sell. The growth of his profits will help improve the food conditions of his family. His future plans include adding an extension to his shop.
