Oumar is a travelling vendor. He's 39 years old and has been working in business since he was 20. He is married and has four children. Oumar sells kitchen utensils and uses the method employed by women to collect his payments on a daily basis (he sells the products on credit and then returns everday to collect payment). He works from 9am to 6pm. With the loan, he can increase his inventory. He manages all the family expenses.
In the future, he would like to open his own store and offer his customers a large variety of kitchen items.
