A loan of $525 helped to buy motorcycle insurance, a transport permit and to pay taxes.


Placide's story

Placide is a motorcyclist. He is married, 38 years old and he has 4 children - the eldest is 9 years old, and the youngest 3. Three of his children attend school and he has no other dependents. He completed 6 years of secondary education. Having started with the ACB in 2005, this will be Placide's 12th loan. All the loans he has previously taken out have been repaid.
The loan accorded to him this time has allowed him to buy motorcycle insurance, to pay the transport permit and the taxes. He does not anticipate any difficulty which could result in him failing to repay the loan. His plan is to work hard in order to be able to buy a car. The profit he generates as a motorcyclist allow him to take good care of his family.
