Cheikh

Senegal
Senegal / Phone Use Sales

A loan of $1,050 helped to buy telephone recharge cards for resale.


Cheikh's story

Cheikh is a 21-year old man who has been buying and selling rechargeable telephone cards for the past two years. He began with the help of his father and his own savings. He is married but does not yet have children; his wife lives with her family in a large family and he makes a monthly contribution for food. He would like to boost his capital and is thus requesting a loan to buy Orange, Tigo and Expresso network cards. His future plans are to expand his business and diversify both his products and services, by selling portable and landline telephones for example.
