A loan of $400 helped to buy food items to stock his store.

Daouda's story

Daouda is a young man, who quickly started working in the store that he inherited from his parents. He has over 10 years’ experience in this field. It was thanks to his father that he was able to start up, as he has a large general food store and is well-known in the village where he lives. Daouda is married and responsible for a family.

Daouda has always worked with his own means, but for this first time he has requested the financial support of UIMCEC. He has requested a loan of 200,000 francs CFA, which he will use to buy 20 bags of rice, a barrel of oil, and sugar. Daouda is responsible for his daily household expenses and, in the future and if he has the means, he dreams of working in raising livestock.
