Mr. Adama is 62 years old and lives in Senegal. He is his family’s breadwinner. He has two wives and nine children, and two additional dependents.

He is a taxi driver who has worked in transportation for over 20 years. This sector has always been prosperous in Senegal, which is why he made this particular career choice.

He became a member of a U-IMCEC branch in 2011. He is now seeking a loan of 500,000 francs to repair one of his taxis that broke down. This loan will allow him to get it running again, to increase his sales, and to provide for the daily expenses of his extended family.
