Birama
Birama is around 49 years old, polygamous and father to eight children. He lives with his wives and their children in Niena, a village which lies around 75 km from the town of Sikasso.

Birama has been trading in building materials for more than 15 years. He enjoys a good reputation and gets a lot of orders, but he does not have the necessary resources to meet this demand. He thus joined Soro Yiriwaso this year with a view to being able to satisfy his ever-increasing customer demand more easily. Birama is requesting this loan to buy: 50 size 8 iron bars, 40 size 6 iron bars and 30 planks. He gets his supplies in Sikasso and Bamako. He generally sells to order.

With this loan he is expecting to make a monthly profit of 125,000FCFA. With the profits he makes, he is planning to cover the majority of his expenses, as well as those of his family, and pay the interest on his loan; the rest will be reinvested in his business.
