Souleymane's story

Souleymane is 41 years old and lives in the Southern part of Senegal. He is married with three children, of whom two attend kindergarten. The third is five months old and stays home with its mother. Souleymane has been trading and delivering fish with his bicycle over the past six years. This loan will allow him to travel to Kaffountine (an area where fish are abundant), buy wholesale and then resell in his local market. He begins his workday buying fish in Kaffountine from 3:00 until 5:00 am. He then travels to his local market from 5:30 to 6:30 where he sells from 7:00 until 11:00 am. Finally he returns to the Kaffountine area where he sells from 7:00 until 11:00 pm. Souleymane's activity enables him to manage all of his family's expenses. In the future, he intends to take out a large credit loan to acquire a refrigerated truck for his fish-trading activity.
