Cheikh's story

Mr. Cheikh D. is a 39-year-old fisherman in Yoff who lives in the Thongor Ndioufene district.  He has been a member of the Yoff lending group since June 2007 and has already benefited from a previous loan.  He is unmarried with no children and has devoted his time especially to artisanal fishing for over ten years.  Cheikh regularly scours the course from Yoff to Kaya to Ngaparou and back.  He picked this trade out of passion.  And his happiest times are when he catches a lot of fish, since he is sure to make a lot profit. 

Cheikh is requesting a loan of 400,000 francs with the goal of fixing up a bedroom and a bathroom, so as to improve his living situation.
