A loan of $600 helped to buy fertilizer, manure, diesel and nine pots of cabbages.


Ousmane's story

Ousmane has been a farmer for more than 15 years. He owns a field where he carries out a market gardening activity. He is married and a father. He is requesting a loan of 300,000FCFA so that he can buy nine pots of cabbages, seven sacks of fertlizer, 15 sacks of manure and diesel. Ousmane takes care of his family's daily expenses and would furthermore like to increase his production capacity; this however requires an increase in his working capital and thus the aid of IMCEC.
