Mor is a mechanic by trade, and started to learn this profession in a workshop owned by one of his uncles in 1993. He opened his own space in the garage 20 years later, and started to offer his services. He works from 10 in the morning until 11 at night if he has to, as he always likes to be available for his customers. He already took out a loan from UIMCEC to buy more materials, and has now requested a further loan so that he can build a painting room in his garage.

Mor is married and a father to two children. He provides for his family’s daily expenses and ensures their comfort, so that they never have to want for anything. Mor’s dream is to become well-known in his line of work, as well as to improve his working conditions and his workshop. To do this, however, he relies on the support of a financial institution like UIMCEC.

Monsieur Mor est mécanicien de profession. C’est en 1993 qu’il a commencé à apprendre le métier dans l’atelier d’un de ces oncles. Vingt ans après, il ouvre son propre domaine au garage et commence à pratiquer. Il travaille de 10h du matin jusqu’à 23h s’il le faut car il est très disponible pour sa clientèle. Il prend une fois un crédit à l’IMCEC pour compléter son matériel. Actuellement il fait un renouvellement pour la construction d’une salle de peinture dans son garage.
Mor est marié et père de deux enfants. Il s’occupe de la dépense quotidienne de sa famille et du confort de cette dernière et veille à ce qu’ils ne manquent de rien.
Tout ce dont Mor rêve est d’avoir une renommée dans son travail, améliorer ses conditions de travail et son atelier. Cependant, il compte sur l’appui financier d’une institution financière comme l’IMCEC.
