Monsieur Moussa accompanied his father into the fields beginning at a young age, which whet his appetite for the agricultural profession. He has now acquired twenty years of experience. Moussa has especially turned toward truck farming, more precisely, potato farming. The loan will therefore be used to buy potato seeds and agricultural fertilizers. Moussa spends long days working, which begin at six o'clock in the morning and end at eight in the evening; this also shows all the love that he dedicates to his business. Married, Moussa succeeds in properly feeding his children and his family thanks to the profits from his business. As a future project, he would like to open a store where he would sell only agricultural products on a large scale.
Monsieur Moussa accompagnait depuis le bas âge son père, aux champs ce qui a réveillé en lui le métier d’agriculteur. Il a acquis maintenant une expérience de 20 ans. Moussa s’est surtout tourné dans le maraichage plus précisément la culture de pomme de terre. L e crédit va donc lui servir à acheter des semences de pomme de terre et des intrants agricoles. Moussa passe une longue journée de travail qui démarre à 6h du matin pour se terminer à 20h du soir ; cela montre aussi tout l’amour qu’il voue à son activité. Marié, Moussa parvient à nourrir convenablement ses enfants et sa famille grâce aux revenus de son activité. Comme projet futur, il aimerait ouvrir un magasin ou il vendrait que des produits agricoles à grande échelle.
