Djiby is married and the father of four children. He has been fattening cattle for over five years. He typically buys one or two oxen, fattens them up for seven months and then resells them at times when the demand is high. Thanks to this activity, he is able to take care of his family's needs for food, clothing and healthcare. In order to start fattening some cattle again, he is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs for the purchase of two oxen and cattle feed. His ambition is to continue to expand his business.
