A loan of $1,275 helped to buy millet and peanuts ( 3 tonnes ), for resale.


Mor's story

Mor is in his thirties and has been in business for more than ten years. He started his business in cereal sales, in 1996.

Mor rises early to visit the weekly markets and buy millet and peanuts. He buys them at low, affordable prices and then resells them to his customers in town for a profit. He sets out his merchandise from 8am until 1pm, and two days later, he revisits his customers to collect his money. He will use his loan to buy three tonnes of millet and peanuts, for resale.

Mor is married and has three children. He supports his family thanks to his profitable business. He can now also save money and improve the standard of food of his family.

Mor and his family have a roof over their heads. In the future, he would like to expand his home and buy a vehicle for his personal use.
