Abdou's story

Abdou is a young man who lives in Senegal. He is 36 years old. He is married and has been working in retail for over 15 years.

He sells living room furniture, wall beds, slates, and refrigerators. He was influenced by his father in choosing this line of work. He has been a member of a branch of the U-IMCEC since September 2011.

He is asking for a loan of 500,000 frs which he plans to use to buy furniture items (wall beds, armchairs) which he will then resell. His main goal is to increase his profits.
