Mamadou Demba's story

Mamadou is a livestock trader who lives twelve kilometres from the loan office. He is 58 years old, married and the father of three children - the eldest of whom is 20 and the youngest 16 years old. He covers the expenses of his family and also those of his children.
Mamadou begins his day at 8am and finishes at 6pm. He is requesting a loan in the amount of 150,000F in order to increase his livestock and meet his customers' demand.
His plans for the future are to start an agricultural farm and to diversify his livestock.
