A loan of $575 helped to get his taxi back.


Abdou Lahat's story

Monsieur Abdou Lahat is a married man who lives in Senegal. He has developed his career in the transport sector for three years. He drives a taxi and uses the profit generated to support the daily expenses of his household. He starts his work day at 8am and finishes at 9pm. He is a member of a branch of UIMCEC where he is asking for a loan of 300,000 francs to repair his vehicle, which has broken down. Stopping work has negative repercussions in his family's equilibrium, and this financing will allow him to restart his business in order to continue to meet his responsibilities as head of his family, but also to save money. His biggest dream is to acquire some taxis in the future, but also to have a big hen house to branch out his business.
