A loan of $400 helped to buy ten sheep.


Ousmane's story

This borrower is a married man and the father of two children. He is in the business of raising livestock intensively, particularly the fattening of sheep. He buys sheep at low prices at the weekly markets in his town and then fattens them while providing good veterinary care before he resells them at the end of six months at city markets. This business enables him to care for his family by meeting their basic needs in terms of food, health care, clothing....

To increase his business capital, he is requesting a loan of 200,000 francs to buy ten sheep. His ambition is to bolster his business.
