Alpha's story

Alpha is a married man who lives in Senegal. He has been working for a security firm for the past year. He is a member of one of the UIMCEC branches and is requesting a loan of 100,000 francs for a transaction relating to Tabaski (also known as the Sheep Festival). He lives far from his wife and regularly sends her money for her food. His loan will enable him to increase his income and thus improve his small family's nutrition. His future project is to become an important livestock farmer.
