A loan of $1,050 helped to buy rechargeable phone cards for resale.

Alassane's story

Alassane is 25 years old and married. He sells rechargeable phone cards, and he has a five-year experience in this field. He does not have a stall but works as an itinerant seller, all over town. He is requesting this loan in order to buy rechargeable phone cards from providers such as Orange, Tigo, Expresso, all present in Senegal. Since the profit he makes by selling one rechargeable card is very small, Alassane is planning to buy bulk quantities in order to maximize his profits. He takes care of his young family and of their daily needs. Alassane would like to have the means to open a shop one day, and would like to sell not only phone cards but also mobile phones and accessories.
