About Me

I am a university student studying accounting and finance, and at the same time I work for a charitable organization during vacations. The charitable organization helps disadvantaged children have access to education. Since I am the oldest in my family, I support my family as well. I have seven brothers. I own a taxi which allows me to support my family's needs as well as my own. The taxi is our only source of revenue because my father is only employed as a simple driver with a monthly revenue of 50,000 FCFA (USD 110) per month, and my mother does not work outside the home. I am applying for a loan because my own finances are limited: my aunt who is very dear to me paid for my education has had a serious accident and I paid for her medical care. Unfortunately the cost of her medical care drained my bank account, and I am left short of cash. My problem is that my taxi's motor needs to be replaced within fifteen days; otherwise I risk a serious breakdown. I have also paid for my studies with the money that I earn. Thank you for your kind understanding, as I cannot tell you everything unless I spend many days writing.

My Business

I have a transport business named Barry21, which earns revenue of 280,000 FCFA (USD 617) per month. I had been planning to buy a new car, before having this problem (i.e. breakdown of the current vehicle) because my goal is to build one of the biggest transport businesses in Dakar city, or even in all of Senegal.

Loan Proposal

I would like to use this loan to buy a new taxi, because with two vehicles it will be much easier for me to earn enough to make my loan repayment comfortably and I will thus not get in the way of others who need Zidisha in order to advance their businesses. I also thank those who placed their confidence in my for my first Zidisha loan. If I do not manage to post comments very often, it is because the electricity service is often down in Dakar at the moment. I count on you all in order to realize my dream. I am already halfway down the path to success, and in my eyes now all that is thanks to Zidisha and its partners. Thanks for everything.
