Djily's story

Djily lives in Senegal, in one of the towns located in the suburbs. He is a street vendor, and has worked in small-scale retail for the past three years, selling cellphones and accessories. He is a married man, and provides for the payment of his household water and electricity bills, starting work at 10 in the morning and returning home at 8:30 in the evening.

Djily is a member of one of the UIMCEC branches, and has requested a loan of 300,000 francs to buy cellphones and accessories for resale. He would like to develop his retail business, increase his income, and be able to better provide for his family’s daily expenses, so that he can meet his priority goal of providing them with better food. He plans to have his own store where he can carry out his business.
