A loan of $1,275 helped to repair his truck.

Mbeugou's story

A driver by profession, Mbeugou has been driving his truck since 2000. He is a married father of three, the eldest of whom is 7. Mbeugou works for a private individual who gave him a truck and asks for a weekly payment; on the flip side, he pays him an average salary of 65,000 francs per month. His work consists of transporting fish to rather far areas of the country. With the long distances and since he’s transporting fresh fish, he needs to have a vehicle in good condition. This is why he is seeking a loan to make some vehicle repairs. Mbeugou handles the daily expenses of his family. If the market is good, he can save a little money that has nothing to do with his weekly payment. He hopes to one day own his own vehicle, to work for himself, and to build a house.
