A loan of $400 helped to buy five head of purebred sheep.

El Hadji Aly Ndiaye's story

El Hadji is a young furniture maker who has been in this trade for nearly eight years. He reinvested his profits in revenue-generating businesses and especially in raising sheep. So he built a pen at his house and frequently purchases sheep, which he fattens for a few months and then resells.

El Hadji is a married father with four children, of whom two are in primary school. In addition to his small family, he supports his two parents, as well as his brothers and sisters, who do not yet have steady jobs.

To increase his profits and thus to cope with his heavy responsibilities, El Hadji is requesting a loan of 200,000 francs to buy five head of purebred sheep. His ambition is to raise cows.
