Faigh Florent's story

This client is 56 years old, married and the father of four children from 11 to 28 years of age. Not having a public servant’s salary to rely on, he created a small business to retail luggage. His receipts are from 10,000 to 80,000 West African francs per day. Given the high volume of customers and the dearth of quality merchandise, this microloan will allow him to grow his business further and continue his work towards implementing his vision of becoming an importer and wholesaler one day. Honoring his social obligations, he serves as a role model in his community.
