Adama's story

Adama is the father of two children aged three and seven. One of his children goes to school. He has five other people in his care. He is a merchant and has been running a hardware store in the capital market for 18 years. He is in his tenth loan cycle with the IMF YIKRI and he repays his credits well.

Adama is asking for a loan to buy 20 bottles of ORYX gas, 20 cartons of tire bulbs and 20 key locks in order to increase his stock and to resell to his customers. He plans to use the profit to reinvest in his business and save to improve the living conditions of his family.
