A loan of $800 helped to pay medical expenses for his sick grandmother.

Dieye's story

Dieye is from Sénégal. He is a father of a family, and manages to meet his family's living expenses thanks to his work as a fisherman - an activity he has undertaken for more than fifteen years. He is a member of one of the U-IMCEC offices, from where he is requesting a loan of 400,000 CFA. With this personal loan he intends to pay for medical care for his sick grandmother. An improvement in his grandmother's health will help him somewhat in meeting the household expenses.
His future ambition is to obtain a small boat and equipment in order to work for his own account.
