Mr. Kalidou is an elderly seller of sheep who has been active for over thirty years. He loves his trade because his sheep are like his children. Kalidou is requesting this loan to buy some sheep and to increase his herd.
Kalidou was born in 1959, and he is married and the father of four children. The oldest is 17 years old and the youngest is 7. Basically, Kalidou is active for the sake of his children and family, so as to support them day to day, despite his age.
As with most people like him, his overall plan is to have still more animals to raise in order to resell.
Monsieur Kalidou est un vieux vendeur de moutons qui s’active depuis plus de 30 ans. Il adore son métier car ses moutons sont comme ses enfants.
Kalidou sollicite ce crédit pour acheter des moutons et augmenter son cheptel.
Kalidou né en 1959, est marié et père de 4 enfants dont l’ainé est âgé de 17 ans et le cadet 7 ans. En effet, c’est pour ses enfants et sa famille qu’il s’active toujours, pour satisfaire leur besoins quotidiens malgré son âge.
Comme la plupart des gens de cette race, son projet majeur est d’avoir toujours davantage de bêtes à élever pour revendre.
