A loan of $1,000 helped to stock up on spare auto parts for resale.


Cherif's story

Chérif is a single man who lives in southern Senegal. He became a mechanic six years ago, and he started selling spare parts out of his shop to better serve his customers.

Chérif plans to use his loan to strengthen his business and generate more profits. This will help him to support his parents and plan for his future, eventually having a house of his own.
