A loan of $800 helped to buy a new motorcycle.

El Hadji Ousmane's story

The borrower is a youth who stopped his studies in the third year of college because he was the only one supporting his two parents. So he began transporting merchandise by cart. With the saturation of this sector, he was no longer able to make the daily payments to his employer and make a profit.

So he turned to motorcycle transport, which is the main mode of transportation in his town. After one year, he was able to buy his own motorcycle and to save in his account opened at the UIMCEC. He also manages to regularly take care of the daily expenses for the care of his family.

Today, to improve his income, he wants to buy a new motorcycle and is thus requesting a loan of 400,000f from the UIMCEC. His goal is to set up a motorcycle transport park in his town.
