A loan of $625 helped to purchase seeds and manure.


Ousmane's story

Ousmane has been a teacher for eight years. He lives in southern Senegal. He is 36 years old, married, and without children. Ousmane was born into farming. Each year, during the major holidays, he goes back to the village to help his dad work in the fields, where they earn a lot at harvest time. He is requesting a loan of 300,000 francs from the U-IMCEC branch office, where he is a member, to purchase some seeds and manure for cultivating his personal field of watermelons, so as to earn more money. He would like to be a major farmer in the future.
