Djily's story

Mr. Djily D. is a 36-year-old shopkeeper who rents his commercial location a few meters from the local Yoff branch of U-IMCEC. He is married and the father of a two-month-old infant. He learned the business for several years working as an employee of more experienced shop owners. He currently manages his own shop. Mr. D. feels this is the only way he can earn a living and meet his personal needs. Running a business is also something he has inherited from his parents. He is requesting a loan for 500,000 francs to buy merchandise and build up his shop. The loan will enable him to buy certain products frequently requested by his customers, for which he lacks sufficient funds. He will therefore be able to significantly increase his turnover and his income.
