A loan of $500 helped to entirely repaint his taxi.


Ibrahima's story

Ibrahima is a married polygamous man who has two spouses. He's the father of nine children, out of whom four attend school. He's a truck driver for a company that extracts sand and white concrete, not far from his village.

In addition, he has a taxi and offers interurban transportation services, which earns him an extra income and enables him to better provide for his family's needs.

He's seeking a loan of XOF 250'000 from Kiva's partner, UIMCEC, in order to entirely repaint his taxi and make it more attractive to customers. He ambitions to complete the house he is building for his family.
