Moussa Samake is 25 years old and he lives with his 2 children and his wife in a traditional family in Moridjambougou, a quarter in the city of Ouelessebougou of the Kati prefecture, in the Region of Koulikoro.

Moussa Samake did not have the chance to complete school and early on he left the school system. He became interested in revenue-generating activities, especially raising livestock (one of the family businesses) and the sale of cereal grains, a business he learned from his uncle. With a four-year experience, Mr. Moussa Samake enjoys a high reputation and is highly solicited in Ouelessebougou and the surrounding regions.

In order to satisfy his growing clientele, he decided to join Soro Yiriwaso (Kiva Field Partner). Having successfully repaid his first loan, he is now on his second individual loan. It will be used to purchase 4 tons of cereal grains (corn, beans, millet) from the producers. He will store his inventory for at least one month. He sells essentially in wholesale to a clientele made up of retailers who come from large cities, such as Bamako.

Moussa Samake expects to earn a monthly income of 25.000 FCFA which will be used to repay this loan and to reinvest the remaining portion in his business.
