A loan of $425 helped to buy spare parts.


Masseye's story

Mr. Masseye G. is a merchant of spare parts who lives in the Cité Lamy district of Thiès, a city located 70 km from Dakar, the capital of Sénégal. In the past, he was a mechanic, but with the help of funds from a tontine (a community revolving savings and loan group), he bought spare parts in order to resell them at the Thiès bus station. He's requesting his first loan from IMCEC and Kiva to bolster his business. Mr. G. is unmarried and, with the revenues from his enterprise, he supports himself.
