Abdou Karim is a married man, who is father to three children. He has been selling second-hand clothing for the past three years and gets his supplies from large traders in Dakar, reselling his goods on a retail basis. His business is sufficient to generate a regular income which enables him to provide for his family's needs as well as his own. In order to build up his business he is requesting a loan of 300,000 francs to buy bales of second-hand clothing. His ambition is to travel for his business in surrounding countries.
