Mamadou Lamine
Mamadou Lamine was born in 1985 and has been a driver since 2007. He first started working as an informal taxi driver with a car he received from his brother. Now, he drives his own car and needs a loan so that he can make repairs, change the motor, and re-paint.

So that he does not ask too much of his car, he returns home at 8 p.m., so that the motor has time to rest.

Mamadou Lamine is married but does not have any children yet. He lives at his father's house and contributes a sac of rice to help take care of the family's daily needs.

Mamadou Lamine's goal is to become a well-known driver.

Mamadou Lamine, né en1985, est chauffeur depuis 2007. Il s’est perfectionné en conduisant le véhicule de son frère qui le lui a remis pour qu’il en fasse un taxi-clando. Actuellement, il conduit son propre véhicule, et a besoin d’un crédit qui lui permettra de réparer sa voiture, de changer de moteur et de refaire la peinture. Pour ne pas trop demander au véhicule, il descend 20h du soir, ce qui fait que le moteur peut se reposer un temps.
Mamadou Lamine est marié mais n’a pas encore d’enfant. Il habite chez son père et participe à hauteur d’un sac de riz pour la dépense quotidienne de la famille.
Mamadou Lamine a comme ambition de devenir un grand transporteur.

More information about this loan

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.
