A loan of $625 helped to buy wood to make furniture for his clients and his workshop.

Abdou Salam's story

Abdou Salam is a 30-year-old man. He lives locally to the field partner and has worked as a furniture maker for more than ten years. Abdou Salam is married, has children and is responsible for providing for all the day-to-day expenses of his family. He has requested this loan in order to buy supplies such as wood and other accessories, for his furniture making business.

Abdou Salam starts his working day at eight in the morning and finishes at seven in the evening. He makes beds and wardrobes to order for his customers, and sometimes makes wardrobes to expose for sale.

In the future, he would like to diversify the products and services which he offers, by employing more workers. This would lead to greater customer satisfaction, increase his revenue and improve the living conditions of his family.
