Boris Carnot Dagobert's story

Boris Carnot Dagobert, aged 38, is single and cares for two children. In 2000 he left school in his final year because he lacked financial resources, and began selling oil. In the beginning he could buy only 1 or 2 cans of oil of 25 liters, but when he became a client of the microfinance institution Hope S.A., his purchasing capacity increased substantially.

He will use this new loan to increase his inventory by buying 25 cans of oil of 25 liters and 10 cans of palm oil of 25 liters and then he will sell his merchandise to potential customers.

A very pragmatic man endowed with a great ability to sell, he plans to open a large warehouse of groundnut oil and palm oil.
