Our client is called Amadou, and is an agricultural technician by profession. He has worked in this job since 2010. He is married and a father to four children, the oldest of whom is 15 and the youngest 5 years of age.

Amadou has requested a loan to buy seeds and fertilizers to prepare for the agricultural rainy season, which has just begun. He needs a loan of 300,000 francs CFA. With the profits generated from this loan, he will be able to pay for his children’s education, repay his debt as agreed and improve his family’s dietary conditions.

Amadou is responsible for the daily needs of his children and family. In the future, he would like to work in agriculture, cattle raising and sheep fattening. He therefore needs funds to start off these businesses, and has asked for the support of UIMCEC.
