Thierno's story

Thierno is a young man who has been involved in sewing for several years already. He is single and has no children. He has opened a tailor's shop at the central market, and he also sells sewing supplies such as lining, poplin, buttons, threads and other items. Thanks to the income he makes with his sewing and retail activities, Thierno is able to provide for his family, particularly for his parents who live in the same village and to whom he regularly gives money. Thierno would like to increase the size of his sewing supplies shop in order to also sell fabrics.
