Rokia
Born in Bamako and 27-years-old, Rokia is married and the mother of a son. She lives with her husband and their children in a large traditional extended area of Médine Sikasso (third administrative region of the republic of Mali).

After having carried on many businesses without success, Rokia started about ten years ago in the business of buying and selling grocery store items. She conducts her business outside her home in Médine Sikasso where she is sought after by her customers for the quality of her products.

In order to satisfy her growing number of customers, she decided to join the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso about a year ago. After repaying her first loan without much difficulty, she seeks a second in order to buy from the suppliers of SIkasso and also from Bamako, 30 packets of NBB beverages, 70 cases of BRAMALI drinks, 50 cartons of mineral water, 20 cartons of Candia milk, 60 boxes of different canned drinks (Malta, Vimto, Ivorio, etc.), 20 packages of mineral water in pouches, 15 cartons of different types of biscuits, etc.

With the second loan, she plans to make a monthly profit of 300,000 FCFA which will essentially be used to contribute to family expenses, to pay the interest on her loan and to invest the rest in her business.
