Modou's story

Mr. Modou D. is a security agent in a Guediwaye private school. He is 51 years old and has been a member of the local U-IMCEC savings and loan center since February 2003. Mr. D. has already been granted two previous loans. He has never attended school and needed to find an occupation to meet his basic needs, which is why he chose to become a security guard. As he wishes to improve the living conditions of his two wives and their respective children, he is requesting a loan for 400,000 francs. The loan will serve to buy cement, iron, sand, bricks and mortar, with the aim of adding five rooms to his home.
