Simon's story

Simon is married and has worked raising livestock for more than ten years. He is seeking a loan through UIMCEC for 200,000 francs, because he would like to buy two cows to increase his number of livestock. He works by himself to take care of the cows and is busy from 6 a.m. until 5 p.m., after which he puts the animals in their enclosures. Simon lives in a family with this parents, brothers, sisters, and his wife and children. He alternates with his brothers to take care of the everyday expenses. Simon would like to own more cattle and also raise some sheep, especially for the upcoming Tabaski festivals.
