A loan of $550 helped to buy various spare parts and other supplies for cars and motorcycles.

El Hadji Mansour's story

The borrower is a tire repairman, married with no children. He also opened a little store next door to his workshop where he sells spare parts for cars and motorcycles. He learned his trade for six years before setting up on his own.

Today he buys wholesale tires and inner tubes and various other products that he sells retail to customers in his locality. He lives in a town that is principally characterized, among other things, by thousands of "Jakarta" motorcycles that take care of urban transport. This is why, in view of the strong demand for spare parts, he is asking U-IMCEC for a loan of 250,000 francs to buy 50 tires, 50 inner tubes, 50 tubes of glue, 10 cases of acid and various other spare parts.

The profit from the sale of this stock will allow him to support himself and his family. His ambition is to open up a big store selling spare parts and tires wholesale.
