Alfa's story

Alfa S. J. is married and has seven children. Like the majority of the Fulah tribesmen in the Koinadugu district, he is engaged in the buying and selling of sheep. With his previous loan, he purchased three sheep and one calf. He paid his loan installments with the income from petty trading that is being managed by his wife.

He is now requesting a loan of US$ 175 to purchase two more calves. Alfa said, with a lump sum of cash from SMT, he will be able to increase the number of cows in the shortest time.
