A loan of $800 helped to buy mobile phone recharge cards for resale.


Abdoulaye's story

Abdoulaye, age 26, is a young single man who sells Tigo phone credits. He has over 2 years of experience in this activity, which consists in selling mobile phone recharge cards, or “Izi” as they typically call the retail sale of phone credits.

His profits tend to vary, but he helps with the family’s day to day expenses.

His goal, when he can afford it, would be to bring in another activity to bolster his overall profit.
