Thierno's story

Monsieur Thierno is 29 years old. He is married but does not have any children yet. He is a trader and has been managing a shop since 2006. His shop sells foodstuffs such as pasta, milk, butter, chocolate, vinegar and other types of goods that make their way into the baskets of housekeepers. The loan will enable him to replenish his stock in order to meet increasing demand. Thierno will buy a ton of rice and a vat of oil. He will use his earnings to support his family and to put some money aside; this will help him improve the living conditions of his home.
