Meland's story

This is a young, 26-year-old single man. He is unemployed despite having pursued university studies. He makes a living by selling miscellaneous items from a booth at the corner of his street. He sells candy, cookies, chips, ball pens, pencils, gum, toilet paper, paper tissues, bread, butter, etc. to passersby and local residents.

His daily income ranges from 20,000F to 25,000F. He has already repaid a previous loan, and plans to use this second loan to achieve his goals of becoming a businessman, traveling abroad to import products that are hard to find locally, starting a family, and improving his living conditions.

With this loan, he plans to buy one carton of cookies of various brands, one carton of detergent soap, jars of margarine, pâté, and chocolate spread, one carton of small cans of condensed milk, bags of candy, bags of chips, sugar, and salt. He plans to continue with this activity until he achieves his goal of becoming a famous businessman.
