Papa's story

Papa N. is a taxi driver. In order to diversify his business activities, he invested in hippomobile (horse-drawn) transport. It is developing well in Mbour where most residents living in the city outskirts use this mode of transportation.

He was born in 1982 and lives with his parents in a town located some 80 km from Mbour. He is unmarried and doesn’t have any children. Through this loan he is looking to purchase another horse and another cart to increase his income.
