Ousmane's story

Ousmane lives in a region in western Senegal. He is a merchant and has been active in this domain since 1997. He is requesting this loan to buy some goods (like honey, black-eyed peas, palm oil) in South Senegal. With this loan, Ousmane envisions bolstering his business by increasing his purchasing in order to earn much more profit. This will enable him to have some financial autonomy and to assist his family with day-to-day expenses.
