Oumar's story

Oumar is a 39-year-old man, married and the father of 4 children between the ages of 12 years and 2 years. He lives downtown which is also where he runs his business of kitchen utensils, a business he has been running for 9 years. He owns a shop which he opened with his own funds. Oumar only needs a loan of 500,000 francs CFA to complete some missing packages among the ones that he already displays. He begins his day at 8am and works until 6pm. He takes care of the needs of his children and his wife. As a future goal, he hopes to increase his commercial space.
