Ndiaga has been a driver since 2002. He is married and has two children. He drives a car which does not belong to him and for this reason he is requesting a loan of 300,000FCFA to finalise the purchase of his own car. Ndiaga begins his day at 6am and works to 8pm or even 9pm sometimes.

With the profits he makes from his activity, Ndiaga can put aside money and take care of his family. If he had the means he would get at least two cars, so that he could drive one himself, and give the other to his cousin; he would then collect the income by paying him on a monthly basis.

To reach borrowers who would not normally qualify for loans, UIMCEC has developed partnerships with a number of local organizations created by the poor to promote savings and mutual support. Most members of these organizations take group loans from UIMCEC. Some group members have larger businesses requiring more capital, and therefore receive individual loans. To meet their needs, UIMCEC is offering this loan at a lower interest rate with no material guarantee requirement. By supporting this loan, you are helping poor borrowers access credit at  lower interest rates.


This loan is administered by UIMCEC, a Kiva Field Partner in Senegal since 2008.
