A loan of $525 helped to buy fertilizer and pesticides for the cultivation of his cultural area.

Mamadou's story

Mister Mamadou, 57 years old, is a farmer who has more than ten years experience in this field. He is married and father to a large family. This is why he has been active until now in the fields with the support of his children and his nephew. Mamadou is requesting a loan of 250,000 FCFA in order to buy fertilizer and pesticides and cultivate his area.

From now on Mamadou can save to plan for the unexpected and the probable needs of his home. The loan has also impacted the nutritional conditions of the family.

Despite his age, Mamadou has a wish - to be or be part of the largest producers in Sénégal.
