A loan of $850 helped buy iron and aluminum to make cooking pots.


Abdoulaye Dioum's story

Monsieur Abdoulaye lives next to the branch office. He is married and a father.

He is developing his craft. He is asking for a loan in the amount of 400,000F in order to buy iron and aluminum to make cooking pots. He manages his family's daily expenses as well as the schooling fees for his children.

He has more than 20 years experience in his business. He starts working at 9 am and stops at 6pm. In the future, he would like to have a aluminum pot factory so that he could have a monopoly on the market. That way, he could save money, improve his family's living conditions, and renovate his home.
