Mbaye's story

Mbaye is a married man, and the father of four children who all go to school.

He is a farmer and works particularly hard during the rainy season. During those four months, he cultivates groundnuts, millet and beans. He keeps part of the harvest for his personal consumption and resells another part at local markets. The sale of his crops allows him to have an income and to take care of his family's needs.

In order to prepare for a new farming season, he is requesting a loan of 400,000 francs to buy groundnut, millet and bean seeds. His ambition is to expand the surface area of his cultivated land.
