A loan of $1,050 helped renovate his taxi by re-painting and changing the motor.


Mamadou Lamine's story

Mamadou Lamine was born in 1985 and has been a driver since 2007. He first started working as an informal taxi driver with a car he received from his brother. Now, he drives his own car and needs a loan so that he can make repairs, change the motor, and re-paint.

So that he does not ask too much of his car, he returns home at 8 p.m., so that the motor has time to rest.

Mamadou Lamine is married but does not have any children yet. He lives at his father's house and contributes a sac of rice to help take care of the family's daily needs.

Mamadou Lamine's goal is to become a well-known driver.
