A loan of $500 helped to purchase hay and straw for resale.

Babacar's story

Mr. Babacar lives in Sénégal. He is a married man who manages the household expenses (daily expenses, rent, bills and employee wages) with the income he earns from his business. He specializes in selling hay and straw, which stockbreeders use to feed their livestock. He is a member of one of the branches of the U-IMCEC and is requesting a loan of 250,000 CFA francs to purchase his inventory. He would like to build up his inventory for resale. This would allow him to create a better standard of living for his family. His future goal is to buy an apartment, which he would rent out.
