Our borrower is named Diène. He is married and has children. He just took out another loan to buy a bull for fattening. He lives in a small village about 40 km [25 miles] from the main city. He has been doing this type of work for over 10 years. He is now on his third loan and always pays back his loans properly. This work allows him to support himself and his family. Thanks to the loan he know has a savings policy and is able to improve the nutrition of his household numbers. Some time in the future, he would like to have a large herd.
