Abdoulaye, age 26, is a young single man who sells Tigo phone credits. He has over 2 years of experience in this activity, which consists in selling mobile phone recharge cards, or “Izi” as they typically call the retail sale of phone credits.

His profits tend to vary, but he helps with the family’s day to day expenses.

His goal, when he can afford it, would be to bring in another activity to bolster his overall profit.
Abdoulaye est un jeune célibataire de 26 ans qui évolue dans la vente de crédit Tigo. Il a acquis une expérience de plus de 2 ans dans ce domaine d’activité. Son activité consiste à vendre soit des cartes de crédit, soit du » Izi » comme on appelle couramment la vente de crédit en détail.
Il participe à la dépense quotidienne de la famille car le bénéfice n’est pas aussi régulier que ça.
S’il a les moyens, il aimerait y associer une autre activité qui générerait plus de bénéfices.
