A loan of $825 helped to buy wooden framework (wood boards).


Mamadou's story

Mamadou is a mason who has more than 20 years of experience in his field. He is married and has a family. He is requesting a loan of 400,000 CFA francs in order to purchase some wooden framework and increase his stock (of wood boards), which will prevent him from renting each time he is working on a construction site. This is his first loan.

Mamadou takes care of his family's day-to-day expenses. Thanks to this loan, he will be able to regularly put some money into saving and to improve his family's diet. He would like to expand his stock of wood boards.
