A loan of $625 helped to buy monthly magazines, women's magazines, weekly hair and fashion magazines.


Ousmane's story

The borrower is a young single man without children. He sells newspapers door-to-door and in the different public and private establishments in town. He wakes up early each morning to stock up at the only wholesaler in town in order to resell his newspapers at retail. His business works pretty well and allows him to support his family, especially for their food, sanitary and rental expenses. To strengthen his business, he is requesting a loan of 300 000 francs to buy monthly magazines, women's magazines and weekly hair and fashion magazines. His goal is to rent a cafeteria in town where he will set up a bookstore.
