A loan of $950 helped to buy seeds and fertilizers so he has a good harvest.

Ousmane's story

Ousmane lives approximately 16 kilometers from the institution. He is a married father of a family, and works throughout the day from 7 am to 6 pm to pay for his family's daily expenses and his children's education. He has worked in market gardening for more than 15 years, and has requested a 500,000-franc loan. The loan will be used to buy seeds and fertilizers.

This is Ousmane's third loan, and he has respected his repayment commitments with the institution for his previous loans. With a good harvest he will be able to pay for his children's education, as well as to improve his family's food conditions. One day he would like to have his own field, and to produce more.
