Momar Talla's story

When he stopped attending high school three years ago, Momar got into selling foodstuffs. He opened a grocery store in his locality with the help of his parents. The good location of his store assures him a big clientele. In this way he manages to support his parents and help his younger brothers who are still at school.

In order to bolster his working capital, Momar is asking for a loan of 500,000 francs to buy cases of mineral water, other drinks, detergents, and milk. His ambition is to expand his store.
