Daouda, aged 32, is single and has no children. He sells food products. He opened a store three years ago and works there from 7 AM until 11 PM. He has duly repaid his previous debts to his local branch (of the UIMCEC) and has therefore gained the trust of the UIMCEC representatives.

Thanks to this loan, he will buy a barrel of oil, 1,000 kg of rice, some millet and various other food products that can be resold in a shop. Since he is single and lives with his parents, his duty is to take care of his family's expenses.

His ambition is to diversify his activity one day, and to raise cows and sheep.
