Ousmane's story

Ousmane is 22 years old and actively involved in selling food products. He is single and still lives with his parents. He runs a shop at the local market and wants to make sure that he does not run out of any of the good requested by his customers. To this end, Ousmane has decided to turn to the UIMCEC and requested a loan which will allow him to buy sugar, powdered milk, coffee, tea, as well as gas, for resale. Although he is single and still living with his parents, Ousmane contributes to the daily expenses of his family. His dream is to become a wholesaler and to open a large wholesale and semi-wholesale store whose stocks will not run out.
