A loan of $1,025 helped to buy horses for resale.

Amadou's story

Amadou is 39 years old, married and a father. He has been a calèche (horse-drawn carriage) driver for 18 years. The income from his business enables him to satisfy his family´s needs. He also has a sideline business selling horses, and it is for this enterprise that he is requesting a five hundred thousand franc (500 000 FCFA) loan from the UIMCEC branch.

Amadou is currently on his 3rd loan and has been able to make a profit from his financial activities. He would eventually like to be able to build a shelter for the animals, in order to facilitate access and business transactions.
