Oumou's story

Oumou is a married lady who has two people in her care, and her husband is a mechanic. She has a restauration activity, more specifically she sells "bouillie" (a type of porridge) and fritters. People eat this "porridge" for breakfast and she always manages to sell her entire stock. Her porridge is made from cereals, but her stock of cereals has run out. For this reason she is requesting a loan from WAGES in order to buy six bags of corn, ten bowls of sorghum and 50 bowls of millet. This loan is her third.
