A loan of $500 helped to buy a sewing machine.


Birane's story

Birane is unmarried and 26 years old. He's been a tailor for more than five years, a job that constitutes his main revenue. He joined UIMCEC eight months ago. With the Tabasky Feast (Eid al-Kabi) approaching, he experiences high customer demand, which he cannot meet due to an insufficient number of sewing machines. He's therefore seeking a loan to buy a new sewing machine.
