This man started working at a very young age. His name is Amadou, he is 27 years old and has sold meat for a living for over ten years. He purchases beef, lamb, and goat and sells it from his butcher’s shop. He starts his working day at 7am and ends at 7pm. He is married and has children who he looks after and whose daily expenses he sees to. He would like to buy his own farm for rearing livestock, so that he always has a steady supply of stock in order to meet his customers’ demands. This will also help him to avoid spending too much on stock.

Il a très tôt démarré dans la vie active. Il s’appelle Amadou, il est âgé de 27 ans et a acquis une expérience de plus de 10 ans dans la vente de viande. Il achète soit du bœuf, soit du mouton, soit de la chèvre, qu’il abat pour revendre dans sa boucherie. Il démarre sa journée à 7h pour finir à 19h.
Amadou est marié et père de famille, il les prend en charge et s’occupe de la dépense quotidienne.
Il a comme souhait d’avoir sa propre ferme d’élevage, de pouvoir s’approvisionner à temps et de ne plus être en rupture pour pouvoir satisfaire sa clientèle. Cela lui évitera aussi d’acheter plus cher les bêtes.
