A loan of $900 helped acheter 30 balles de filets.

Mamadou Maguette's story

The borrower is a young, single man who discontinued his studies in middle school due to an inability to pay for them. Therefore, he started fishing.

He lives with his four brothers and three sisters in the house of his uncle. His father lives abroad and his mother passed away in 2008. He acquired a fishing boat, and often spends two months at sea with only two weeks to rest in between trips.

His business brings him important profits with which he takes care of his family while supporting his uncle. In order to update his material, he is asking for a loan of 450,000 Frs. [XOF] in order to purchase thirty bails of netting. His goal is to build his own home in which to house his family.
