Senegal / Motorcycle Transport

A loan of $625 helped to buy a motorcycle of his own.


Seydou's story

This borrower is a young single man who has been driving a city motorcycle taxi for two years. At the end of each day, he earns one third of the day's takings, with the other two thirds going to the owner of the motorcycle. This modest income allows him to meet his own needs and support his parents as best he can.

He has opened an account with UIMCEC and is requesting a loan of 300,000 francs to buy a motorcycle of his own, in order to maximize profits. His goal is to build up a fleet of motorcycles that would be the principal method of transportation in his town.
