A loan of $200 helped to purchase beef, lamb and goat to slaughter and sell in his butcher's shop.

Amadou's story

This man started working at a very young age. His name is Amadou, he is 27 years old and has sold meat for a living for over ten years. He purchases beef, lamb, and goat and sells it from his butcher’s shop. He starts his working day at 7am and ends at 7pm. He is married and has children who he looks after and whose daily expenses he sees to. He would like to buy his own farm for rearing livestock, so that he always has a steady supply of stock in order to meet his customers’ demands. This will also help him to avoid spending too much on stock.
