Matar's story

Monsieur Matar is a young man of 34 years who lives in Senegal. He is married and the father of a two year old. He also has two other people in his care and under his roof. He is a driver who holds a driver's license, but since 2010 he has sold perfumes and other various products, this business being much more profitable for him. He chose this business through one of his storekeeper friends, who at the beginning, stocked him up with products that he sold by investment. These are products that work very well especially in hot periods. He has been a member of an UIMCEC branch since July 2004. He has already repaid two past loans. He is asking for a loan of 300,000 francs, planned for the purchase of perfumes, bath gel, and other items intended to strengthen his business activities. His earnings will allow him to provide for the everyday spending for his family and also to save in order to realize his future plans.
