El Hadji Babacar's story
El Hadji is a married man and father of four children, three of whom go to school. He started selling haberdashery items at the main market of his neighborhood a year ago. He buys his merchandise wholesale in the capital, and sells to tailors at retail. His business is now profitable and allows him to take on a large portion of the family’s household expenses. He is seeking a loan of 250,000F to buy haberdashery items, which will help to strengthen his working capital.
