A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase gasoline.

Inza's story

Mr. Inza is 40 years old and the father of five children. He lives in a polygamist family in Kolondieba’s western district.

He did not attend school for socio-economic reasons. He started very early on to be involved in income generating activities with his uncle who had several businesses (broker, sale of various items). After several years of apprenticeship Inza chose the purchase and sale of gasoline and motor oil. He has been practicing this activity for four years and enjoys a wide experience and a large customer base.

With the objective of increasing his working capital and to make more profit, he is requesting a third loan, which will be used to buy 700 liters of gasoline. He gets his supply in Ivory Coast from authorized wholesalers and sells retail to a mixed clientele.

With this loan he is planning on making a monthly profit of 200,000 francs CFA. This profit will enable him to reimburse his loan and to conduct other income generating activities such as selling hardware items.
