A loan of $825 helped to buy a machine for pumping water.

Modou's story

This borrower's main business activity is small-scale truck farming (market gardening). He lives in a town near the capital of Senegal. He has been working in this business, which he inherited from his father, for more than ten years. He plans to use this loan to buy a machine for pumping water which will allow him to water his field. He also plans to buy fertilizer for his field. Through this loan, he would like to see his income increase and be able to support his younger brothers in their education.
