Modou is 35 years of age, and has worked with aluminum for the past 10 years. He is married and a father to a 2-year-old child, and has always wanted to have this job from a very young age.
Modou has just requested for the first time a loan of 500,000 francs CFA. He plans to buy an aluminum-cutting machine and reduce his charges, as he currently pays other individuals with these machines to carry out this service for him. He starts work at 9 in the morning, finishes at 6 pm, and receives a lot of orders from his neighbors.
In the future, Modou would like to open a large aluminum workshop.
