Monsieur Abdou Lahat is a married man who lives in Senegal. He has developed his career in the transport sector for three years. He drives a taxi and uses the profit generated to support the daily expenses of his household. He starts his work day at 8am and finishes at 9pm. He is a member of a branch of UIMCEC where he is asking for a loan of 300,000 francs to repair his vehicle, which has broken down. Stopping work has negative repercussions in his family's equilibrium, and this financing will allow him to restart his business in order to continue to meet his responsibilities as head of his family, but also to save money. His biggest dream is to acquire some taxis in the future, but also to have a big hen house to branch out his business.
Monsieur Abdou Lahat est un homme marié qui vit au Sénégal. Il évolue depuis 3ans dans le secteur du transport. Il conduit un taxi et utilise les revenus générés pour supporter la dépense quotidienne de son foyer. Il commence sa journée de travail à 8 heures le matin pour la terminer à 21 heures. Il est membre d’un des guichets de l’U-IMCEC ou il sollicite un crédit de 300 000 frs pour réparer son véhicule qui est en panne. L’arrêt de son travail se répercute négativement dans l’équilibre de sa famille, et ce financement lui permettra de reprendre ses activité afin de continuer à faire face a ses responsabilités de chef de famille mais aussi d’épargner de l’argent. Son plus grand rêve est d’acquérir des taxis dans le futur mais aussi de disposer d’un grand poulailler pour diversifier son activité.
This loan is administered by UIMCEC, a Kiva Field Partner in Senegal since 2008.
