A loan of $600 helped to buy oxen for resale.

Oumar Hamady's story

Oumar Hamady, a 51-year-old man, is a large livestock breeder who has been in this line of work for 3 years. He is married and the father of 11 children, the eldest of whom is 18 years old and the youngest, a 1-month-old baby. His business consists of buying oxen which he fattens during 8 or 9 months and then resells. With this loan, he will be able to increase the amount of livestock in his pen. Oumar Hamady manages his daily expenditures and makes sure that his children get an education. One day, he would like to start an orchard and engage in market gardening.
