This young merchant, 30, is single and he started out selling groceries and bread almost 10 years ago. Very young and having no one to support him, he opened up a stall with 50,000 francs that he had saved up by selling bread. His sales amount to 15,000 to 25,000 francs a day. His strategy is to get up early and buy warm bread from the bakery, then go from door to door, calling out his wares, in the back streets of his community. At 8 am he opens his kiosk where he sells the remaining loaves of bread and other foodstuffs.

With the loan that he is counting on receiving, he is going to buy cartons of powdered milk such as "la belle Hollandaise" and "Nido" milk, a sack of 50 kg of sugar, tinned foods, and various detergents and bath soaps.

His ambition is to open up a real grocery store, to get married one of these days, and start a family. In his neighborhood everyone has known him since he was a child.
