Déthié's story

This borrower is a peasant farmer who grows millet and peanuts and who operates market garden during the dry season. During the rainy season, he buys cows and sheep, and he fattens and resell them on the market. This diversity in his businesses enables him to support his wife and his two children.

He is requesting a loan of 150,000 francs to buy 4 heads of sheep at 20,000 francs each and 2 sacks of feed, as well as some peanut meal, to feed them. When they are fattened enough, the sheep will be sold at 60,000 francs each and should bring in the revenues substantial enough to improve his family’s living conditions. His ambition is to open a shop selling grocery items and animal feed.
