Moussa is a 38-years old man who works hard to be able to support his family. He lives with his household in a small village about 7 km away from the capital. For three years he has been working in agriculture: he sells millet, corn, peanuts etc. As shown in the photo, he stocks up during the rainy season in order to resell at a higher price during periods of shortage. This is why he is requesting a loan in the amount of 400,000 West African francs. He is married and provides for everyday needs of his family members. In the future he would like to have a larger customer base at his market and be able to offer everything that his customers need, so that they wouldn’t have to go elsewhere.
