Omar's story

Omar has two wives and is the father of eight children, the eldest of whom is 22 and the youngest seven months.

Omar raises livestock and has more than ten years’ experience in this area. He fattens cattle and has also prepared an area in his house for business purposes. He is requesting this first loan of 400 000 CFA francs to buy two head of cattle and cattle feed.

Omar provides for his family’s daily expenses. His eldest son helps him in the fields.

To maximise his profit, Omar needs to diversify his activities. In order to do this, he would like to open a general food store - this is his greatest wish.
