A loan of $600 helped to refurbish his 7 seat vehicle.


Oumar's story

Mr. Oumar is a young taxi driver who's been doing this job for more than five years now. He owns a car that he would like to refurbish.

He's married and the father of a family. He already benefited from two loans from Kiva's partner, IMCEC, and this third loan will enable him to pay transfer fees, and replace the shock absorbers and the lights.

He takes care of his children and makes it so that they don't lack anything, because he loves them.

He would like to purchase other vehicles to expand his fleet since this job is all he knows. He inherited it from his father. This is why he's seeking support from IMCEC.
