Baye Niass's story

This borrower is a young married man who has no children. He abandoned his studies two years ago as he did not have the means to pay for them. He then launched himself into the sale of telephone recharge cards, a business sector which is currently performing well. His income enables him to provide reasonably for his and his wife's needs. In order to expand his business, he is requesting a loan of 250,000 francs so that he can buy a stock of Orange, Tigo and Expresso cards. His ambition is to be able to set up his own store in the centre of town.
