Cheick Ahamed Tidiane
Mr. Cheick Ahamed Tidiana T. is 28 years old, married, and has 3 children. He lives in a nuclear family with his children and wife in the Missira area, close to the Medersa de Saada Tourè in the city of Ségou (fourth administrative region of the Republic of Mali).
Having abandoned his studies during the 9th year of basic classes (in the Malian education system), and with the goal of being part of the local economic community, he became an apprentice in a refrigeration systems workshop run by one of Ségou's biggest refrigeration engineers. After 5 years of training with this expert and having been enriched by this experience, he decided to start his own business as a refrigeration engineer. Along with this business, he sells freezers and refrigerators, both new and second-hand.
With the approach of the hot season, during which there is greater demand for freezers, he decided to work with Soro Yiriwaso (one of Kiva's field partners). He is on his first loan, which he intends to use to buy 2 freezers. He gets his supplies in Gao.
Mr. Cheick Ahamed Tidiane T. sells his goods in cash and on credit to a clientele composed of men and women.
He intends to realize a monthly profit of 75,000 FCFA, which will serve to repay his loan and to pay a portion of his daily expenses. His goal is to further develop his business.
