Abdoulaye's story

Abdoulaye is married and lives in Senegal. He works as a teacher in a Franco-Arab school located in one of the neighborhoods of his city. He has more than five years of experience working as a teacher and, as a result, his income allows him to cover his family's expenses.

Abdoulaye is a client of one of the branches of the U-IMCEC, and he has already repaid three previous loans. He is requesting a new loan, in the amount of 300,000 CFA francs to repair the slab floor of his house, so that he doesn't have to face any problems during the rainy season, which is fast approaching. Thanks to his loan, he will be able to buy some cement, sand, bricks, wooden beams, and to pay the masons who will work on this project.

Abdoulaye wants to repair his house to protect his family from the ravages of the rainy season, thereby improving their living environment.

In the future, he would like to finish building an apartment, inside his house, in order to rent it.
