Amadou is 39 years old, married and a father. He has been a calèche (horse-drawn carriage) driver for 18 years. The income from his business enables him to satisfy his family´s needs. He also has a sideline business selling horses, and it is for this enterprise that he is requesting a five hundred thousand franc (500 000 FCFA) loan from the UIMCEC branch.

Amadou is currently on his 3rd loan and has been able to make a profit from his financial activities. He would eventually like to be able to build a shelter for the animals, in order to facilitate access and business transactions.
Monsieur Amadou âgé de 39 ans, marié et père de famille est un transporteur de calèche de profession depuis 18 ans. Et c’est avec les recettes de son activité qu’il arrive à satisfaire les besoins de sa famille. Il vend parallèlement des chevaux et c’est d’ailleurs ce projet qui motive sa demande de prêt de cinq cent mille francs (500000fcfa) au niveau du guichet. Il faut noter qu’il est à sa troisième expérience dans le crédit et qu’il a su tirer profil de ses opérations financières.
Amadou aimerai dans l’avenir construire un abri pour ces bêtes afin de faciliter l’accès et les transactions.
