A loan of $1,025 helped to purchase tarpaulin, beams, and canvas for re-sale, primarily in winter.


Oumar's story

Monsieur Oumar grew up in the quarter in which he sells tarpaulin, beams and canvas for a living. He is married with children. He has worked in his field for 10 years. Oumar looks after the family's needs, such as daily expenditures and school fees. Monsieur Oumar is seeking a loan of 500,000 F in order to purchase tarpaulin, beams and canvas which he sells to his customers. During the rainy season the tarpaulin and canvas is in high demand for use in roof covering. Monsieur Oumar begins his day at 8am and finishes at 7pm. In future he would like to boost his revenues with the help of IMCEC, and improve his family's living standards.
