A loan of $1,050 helped to buy 10 cases of "thiof," a fish in the species of grouper.


Cheikh Tidiane's story

The borrower is a mature man, married and the father of four. Since many ears he has been working as a fish trader. He buys fish from the fishing areas in his region and resells them to factories that process it before exporting. This business has brought him steady income allowing him to provide for his family. He is seeking a loan of 500,000 West African francs in order to buy 10 cases of “thiof” [a species of grouper]. His goal is to become an exporter in his own right.
