A loan of $300 helped adding a room to the family house.


Matar Gaye's story

Mr. Matar Gaye K. is a young single man, 25 years of age. He is a security guard working for a security agency. In May 2009, after finishing his military service, he has been recommended by his neighbors to an agency providing security services to several offices, including that of U-IMCEC Thiès. Finding that this line of work would present a logical continuation of his military service, Mr. Gaye has joined the agency. However, he is now seeking a loan of 150,000 West African Francs in order to carry out construction works to add a room to his family’s house.
