Ousmane is a young married man. He is the father of two children, one of whom attends primary school. He was born into a family whose main business has always been traditional animal rearing. Faced with reducing pasture land, he has focused on cattle fattening which is much more profitable. He purchases cattle which he fattens and then sells on. He earns a good living from this, which allows him to adequately meet the family's needs. Therefore, in order to increase his working capital, he is requesting a loan of 300,000f to purchase 2 cows.
