El Hadji Alioune's story

El Hadji is a young, single man who has been selling various hardware products for nearly 3 years. He is a street vendor who buys his items wholesale and resells them door to door whilst walking around the districts of his town. He supports both of his parents and his brothers and sisters with the income derived from his business.

In order to strengthen his business, El Hadji is requesting a loan of 500 000 francs with which to buy locks, hammers, pliers and various other articles. His ambition is to open a shop and to hire his brother, whilst continuing to sell on the street.
