Anchata
Anchata was born around September 1983 in Sikasso. She is married, has 3 children, and lives with her husband and children in a nuclear family, in Sanoubougou I, one of of suburbs of Sikasso.
After trying several activities without much success, she eventually learned to get involved in small business, and for over six years now, she has been buying and selling clothes such as wax print "pagnes" (colorful West African fabrics), embroidered fabrics, handbags etc. She buys her goods in Bobo Dioulasso (in Burkina Faso) and resells them locally at the market where they are highly sought after by her customers, for their good quality. Anchata's customers are mostly housekeepers and women involved in the sale of condiments.
In order to better satisfy an increasing number of customers, Anchata has decided to join Soro Yiriwaso this year. This is her first loan, which she is taking to increase her business and to buy 10 sets of wax print "pagnes", 5 sets of embroidered fabric and 10 handbags.
With this first loan, she is expecting monthly profits to reach 100,000 CFA francs, which will be essentially used to take care of family expenses and pay off her loan's interest, while the rest will be invested in her business.
