A loan of $850 helped to buy a second cart and a horse.

Babacar's story

The borrower is single and does not have children. He works as a transporter of people and baggage with a cart and a horse. During the dry season, he also sells groundnut straw to increase his revenues. As a result of these two activities, he can provide for his family; they live in a village located a few kilometers away from the city where he works.
He is currently requesting a 400,000 XOF loan in order to purchase a second cart and a horse. His ambition is later to acquire a taxi for urban transportation.
