Maneume's story

Maneume is a married man living in Senegal. He is a teacher who has had three years of experience in the field of education. His income allows him to provide food for his family and to pay for the expenses of water and electricity. He spends 11 hours a day working as a teacher.

He is requesting a loan of 500,000 XOF in order to pay for the publishing costs of his book, titled "Harmattan." Maneume hopes to earn supplementary income through his writing project. He plans to save the money his book generates for future expenses.
