Mouhamadou's story

Mouhamadou is a young shopkeeper of 37. He is married, a father, and lives in the main city. He has been selling miscellaneous products (both food items and non-food items) for 15 years. Mouhamadou is requesting a loan for 400,000 francs to strengthen his working capital and develop his business by purchasing more merchandise. This will make him more profits which will mean he can pay the rent on his store and look after his family. Mouhamadou is keen to grow his business and would like, one day, to become a wholesaler. This will allow him to take better care of his family.
