Lamine's story

Lamine is a mechanic who manages an auto repair shop. He is married and the father of four children. He has more than ten years of experience working as a mechanic, and many drivers come to his shop. Thanks to this activity, Lamine is able to generate a good income, which allows him to take care of his family's needs and to build some savings in the account he opened with UIMCEC. In order to upgrade his equipment, he is requesting a loan of 250,000 francs for the purchase of a coil. His ambition is to renew all of his equipment, which has become very old.
