Mamadou's story

Mamadou lives in Senegal and has spent the past 17 years working in the field of carpentry. He is married and is responsible for the payment of bills as well as the daily household expenses. He begins his daily activities starting at 8:00 am and works hard until 6:00 in the evening. Mamadou is a member of his local branch of UIMCEC, where he has already fully repaid his two previous loans. He is currently requesting a loan of 300,000 XOF, which he plans to use for the repair of his vehicle. Mamadou's goal is to further develop his business, increase his revenue, and ultimately improve the health and nutrition of his family. His wish is to someday be an owner in the industry of carpentry manufacturing.
