Sidy  Ndiaye
The borrower is a married man, the father of three children who all attend school. His job is driving a bus transporting tourists whom he conveys to various cultural sites in the country. Moreover, he has an urban transport vehicle. The income from this taxi allows him to improve living conditions for his family. In this way, he manages every month to pay the school fees for his three children, the bills for water and electricity and his rent.

Unfortunately, for two months now, the taxi's motor has been out of commission, causing him difficulty in supporting his family correctly. In order to repair that vehicle, he is asking for a loan of 400,000 francs to buy another motor. His ambition is to get his businesses going again and expand them.
