Messan's story

In 1968, Messan K. was born into a polygamous family in Anfoin. He is married with two children and takes care of a third. As a merchant at the market in Akodessewa, he is the sole provider of the family since his wife lost the strength to work following a prolonged illness. Mr. K. has taken management training and has expertise in his hardware business. He is asking for a loan of $1,000 to take a stronger position in the market by renting a larger retail space and to increase his inventory. By so doing, he will enhance his revenues and improve the living conditions of his family.
