Cheikh Oumar's story

For three years, this borrower has been running a grocery store. He pursued his studies up to the lycee (high school) but had to stop because of vision problems. Being no longer able to study, he became an apprentice in the store of his uncle, who later helped him to open his own grocery store.

Today he is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs from UIMCEC to buy two tons of rice, 200 liters of oil, and various other products. His ambition is to start working in import-export.
