Sérigne works as a retailer and also raises livestock. He goes to the weekly markets in his region to buy sheep or cattle, which he fattens and resells. The diversity of his businesses allows him to generate fairly consistent income, which enables him to correctly provide for his family.
To buy new livestock for fattening, Sérigne has requested a loan of 400,000 francs to buy a cow and livestock feed.
