A loan of $825 helped to buy food products.


El Hadji Galaye's story

Galaye, as his friends call him, is a young, single man with no children. He runs a food store located in the centre of town. He sells wholesale and semi-wholesale and supplies several of the shops in his local district. His business allows him to generate enough income to take care of most of his parents, brothers and sisters' needs; he pays the educational expenses for his sisters, as well as the water and electricity bills for the house, and the food.

In order to reinforce his working capital, Galaye is requesting a loan of 400 000 francs with which to buy food products. His ambition is to further strengthen his business.
