A loan helped buy sheep and goats for resale.


Alassane's story

Mr. Alassane is a 32-year-old man who is married and a father. He is active in the buying and selling of cattle, and has more than 5 years' experience in this business.

Alassane requested a credit loan in the amount of 500,000 francs to go to the weekly markets to buy cattle and return later and resell them to his customers. He manages the daily family expenses and tuition for his children. He starts his day at 6 am to finish at 7 pm in the evening.

With the help of credit loans, Alassane would like in the future to expand and diversify his herd, so he can increase his income and improve the living conditions of his small family.
