Mr. Aliou is a resident of Senegal. He is married and active in the gardening sector, where he has worked for 22 years. He is a member of a U-IMCEC branch, where he has already honored his commitments relative to four loans he had obtained. Presently, he is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs CFA with the goal of building an additional bedroom in his home. The revenues that his garden business generates enable him to cover his family's day-to-day expenses, as well as to pay the bills. Furthermore, this loan will enable him to improve his family's living conditions. His future project is to develop his own firm specializing in developing green spaces.

This loan is administered by UIMCEC, a Kiva Field Partner in Senegal since 2008. UIMCEC is a government-regulated microfinance institution whose mission is to improve the revenue and well-being of families through access to financial services, allowing principally women and young adult micro-entrepreneurs living in rural and semi-rural areas to develop their revenue-generating businesses and supporting them in becoming financially self-sufficient.
About Housing Loans
Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
