A loan of $525 helped to buy millet for resale.

Babacar's story

This is Babacar, age 57. He has been conducting commercial activities for many years. He is a member of an IMCEC branch located in center Senegal, and he has previously benefited from two loans.

Babacar buys millet at the closest weekly markets and sells it in his own neighborhood. Because millet is in high demand in that area, his stock goes fast and he has to replenish it quickly to meet customer demand.

A married man, Babacar manages to support his family with the profits earned through his activity. He would like to build a storage facility, which would allow him to buy larger quantities and to take advantage of the drops in price that occur from time to time.
