Moustapha's story

This borrower is a married man and the father of six children, of whom four are students. He works in the trade of carpentry, especially in construction and in repairing fishing boats. He has working at this since 1983 while he was still a young apprentice of his father's, who taught him the trade. Today, he has his own workshop and manages to support his family and himself with the income derived from carpentry.

To increase his production capacity, he is requesting a loan of 300,000 francs to buy boards and tree trunks. His ambition is to build a large warehouse for lumber and woodworking.
