A loan of $1,000 helped to buy wrought iron as well as some accessories.


Elimane's story

The borrower is a married man, and has 3 children, one of whom goes to primary school. He has been into metalwork for about 12 years. He buys wrought iron which he uses to make beds, tables, and other items, which he sells to his customers. He gains a substantial income from this occupation, which enables him to provide for his wife and his 3 children. To increase his income, he is applying for a 500000f loan, so he can buy wrought iron as well as some accessories. His ambition is to turn his workshop into a company.
