Alassane's story

This borrower is a young single man who abandoned his studies as he did not have the means to continue them. He launched himself into the portable telephone and prepaid telephone credit business; He is the eldest of a family of seven: two parents and five children. The income he generates from his business allows him to help his parents to cover the cost of the family's nutritional, sanitary and clothing needs, as well as its rent, water and electricity bills. In order to strengthen his business, he is requesting a loan of 150,000 francs from UIMCEC so that he can buy telephone credit recharge cards. His ambition is to open a stall in the central market to expand his customer base.
