Assitan
Mrs. Assitan Traoré is 32 years old, married and mother to three children. She lives in a traditional family with her husband, children and other couples in the Hamdallaye district of Ségou (the Republic of Mali's fourth administrative region).

She did not go to school for social reasons and thus went into business at an early age with her mother, who sold fish. After several years at her mother's side, she began developing the same activity by herself. She has been doing this for ten years now at the Chateau market and has a large customer base. Her sales strength is due to the quality of her goods, which are very popular at the "Capitaines de Niono" market. With a view to increasing her business in order to make more profit, she turned to Soro Yiriwaso. She is on her first individual loan, with which she is planning to buy twelve baskets of fresh fish from fishermen. Mrs. Traoré sells for cash and on credit to a customer base made up of men and women.

She is expecting to make a monthly profit of 75,000FCFA, which will allow her to repay her loan and help her husband to cover the family's expenses. Her ambition is to build a house for them to live in.
