A loan of $575 helped to buy chicks.


Papa Alassane's story

Mr. Papa Alassane D. is only 30 years old, but he has 20 years of experience in his primary sector: raising chicks. He started working at a very young age, thanks to his father, who introduced him to the trade. On the roof of his apartment, he built a coop for the chicks (behind Mr. D. in the photo). With the loan and his own funds, he wants to buy 1,000 chicks and 50 large sacks of food to feed them well.

Mr. D. has been a member of UIMCEC since 2003. He has received six previous loans for his businesses. He lives in Yoff, Dakar, with his wife and six small children.
