Ibrahima is a newly-married man who doesn't yet have any children. His business is selling food products such as millet, groundnuts and beans. He buys his merchandise wholesale in the countryside just after harvest time and sells most of his produce from a store, having waited for demand to outstrip supply. He also buys and re-sells sheep in the weekly markets in his town. These businesses allow him to cover his own needs and to support his family. He is currently requesting a loan for 250,000 francs to buy millet and groundnuts to replenish his stock. His goal is to buy a vehicle to make his trips easier.
