Abdoulahat's story

Abdoulahat is a client of the UIMCEC and he sells spare parts. He has a booth at the market. He has acquired more than five years of experience in this field, and he works from 9AM until 7PM.

Abdoulahat is single and his expenses are the following: rent for his booth, transportation and food. He is used to credit as he is on his fifth loan. He acknowledges the positive impact of loans on his savings and the fact that they allow him to improve his family's food conditions.

In the future, he would like to have a large store where he would sell spare parts.
