Mamadou's story

This borrower is a married young man who has two children. He recently opened a grocery store in his district. He sells typical consumer items and household goods. His business brings in modest revenues, which still don't allow him to meet the needs of his family. This is why he is requesting a loan of 300,000 francs from the micro-finance institution U-IMCEC to bolster his working capital and thus to increase his revenues. He wants to buy some rice, milk, sugar, tomatoes, and various other goods. His ambition is to build his business.
