Papa Moustapha's story

The borrower is a young men who provides motorcycle transportation services in the city. He's been doing this job for one year. He's single, but has to support his two parents and his siblings, who attend school.

He's employed for a wage by the owner of the motorcycle, who gives him every evening one third of the daily takings. This small amount of money more or less enables him to cover the family's food expenses, and the school expenses of his siblings.

At this time, he would like to purchase his own motorcycle, and thus maximize his income. For this reason, he's seeking a loan of XOF 400'000 in order to purchase a new motorcycle. He ambitions to build his own house.
