Barham's story

Mr. Barham D. is a young, 24-year-old man who lives in the rural community of Bambilor. He is single and doesn’t have any children. For over a year, Mr. D. has been involved in buying and selling agricultural products such as seeds, insecticides, etc. He benefited from the experience of his older brother, who is in the same business. He eventually opened a shop to make it on his own. This activity allows him to earn a living. He has been a member of the Bambilor credit union since June 2010 but had not received any credit until now. He is requesting a loan of 200,000 francs to increase his stocks by purchasing merchandise (insecticides, fertilizers, seeds). The boost in his profits will enable him to better support himself, and especially to bolster his savings.
