Mame Aly's story

Mr. Aly is a married man and the father of five children. He has been working in commerce from a very young age. He used to help his father, who was a major merchant at the time. Currently, Aly manages his own business and sells millet, peanuts, and pesticides. He is on his third request for a loan and wished to have 400,000 francs CFA for this instance. The previous loans enabled him to increase his revenues considerably, and he says this allowed him to acquire furnishings and household items.
