El Hadji Birane's story

Birane is a young, single man with no children. For two years now, he has been running a store where he sells agricultural products such as millet, peanut straw, and feed concentrates for cattle. Despite his young age, he supports his two parents as well as his brothers and sisters, who he provides for with the income from his business.

Already, he has been granted and has paid back three loans through UIMCEC : one that amounted to 300,0000f, and two that amounted to 500,000f. In order to strengthen his business, he is seeking another 500,000f loan to buy 300 bags of peanut straw, 10 bags of millet, and 25 bags of cattle feed. Birane is striving to strengthen his business and enlarge his store.
