Ndiawar's story

Ndiawar is a 33-year-old man who lives close to the local branch of this microfinance institution. He is married and a father, and has worked selling spare parts for more than six years. He starts work at 8 am, and finishes his day at 6 pm.

Ndiawar is responsible for his family’s daily expenses and the cost of his children’s education. He has requested this loan of 500,000 francs to buy spare parts, which he will resell to his customers. In the future, he would like to open a large spare parts store. He also wants to increase his income, so that he can improve his family’s living conditions.
