Amadou's story

This borrower's name is Amadou. He is single, with no children. He has been working as a carpenter for 5 years. He embraced this professional activity encouraged by one of his friends who also works in this field. With his loan, Amadou would like to buy some raw materials, such as wood and glue, and build beds, wardrobes and dressers, which he will display and sell. Although he is single, Amadou manages his family daily expenses. In the future, he would like to buy a machine that would allow him to increase his volume of production and minimize his operating costs.
