A loan of $1,000 helped to buy chickens he will resell.

Omar's story

Omar, in his forties, lives in Senegal. He is married and has 4 children between the ages of 7 months and 13. He has been selling chickens for 2 years. He chose this activity because it was profitable. What matters most to him is the income and the experience he is getting in this field. He has been a member of a branch of U-IMCEC since April 2006. He has already paid 2 loans back. He is applying for a 500 000 loan so that he can increase his stock of chicken, which he will then resell. An increase in his profits will enable him to better meet the daily needs of his family.
