A loan of $1,000 helped to buy sheep to resell at the local market.


Kalidou's story

Mr. Kalidou is an elderly seller of sheep who has been active for over thirty years. He loves his trade because his sheep are like his children. Kalidou is requesting this loan to buy some sheep and to increase his herd. Kalidou was born in 1959, and he is married and the father of four children. The oldest is 17 years old and the youngest is 7. Basically, Kalidou is active for the sake of his children and family, so as to support them day to day, despite his age. As with most people like him, his overall plan is to have still more animals to raise in order to resell.
