Mr. Abdoulaye G. was born in 1977. He put a lot of himself into business since he finished his Koranic schooling. It was after the death of his father 10 years ago that his uncle left him the shop that his father managed when he was alive. This man, who has been married for 2 years, is on his second loan to run his shop, with which his brother is helping. He is asking for 300,000 FCFA to build up his shop with rice, oil, sugar and tea, which are the most important items he sells.
