Ousmane's story

Ousmane is a married man who practices three business activities: transportation, clothing sales, and cattle fattening. He has been driving a city taxi since 2005. As a secondary activity, he occasionally buys an ox which he fattens over a few months for resale. He also has a small clothing store run by one of his sisters. With such diverse activities, he is able to earn substantial income that allows him to provide for his family’s needs.

To strengthen his working capital, he is seeking a loan of 300,000F to buy trousers, shirts, fabrics and various other items. In the future, he plans to launch a market gardening activity.
