Brehima
Born around 1965, Mr. BREHIMA lives with his four children and wife in a large traditional extended family in Fakola. Not having had the chance to advance in his studies due to societal reasons, Mr. BREHIMA soon became interested in revenue-generating businesses, especially making and selling bread, that is, the bakery trade. He is much appreciated and in demand in the Fakola area.

Priviledged with 26 years of experience in this domain, BREHIMA, in his search for extra financial resources, decided to collaborate with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso and is now on his first loan.

BREHIMA intends to use his loan to buy 5 tonnes of wheat flour from wholesale merchants from the Republic of Cote d'Ivoire. He makes his bread and sells it retail for cash, and sometimes on credit, at the Fakola fair and nearby. The customer base is diverse and varied.

BREHIMA hopes to make a monthly profit of 70,000 francs CFA that will be used to meet family needs, repay the loan, and reinvest in the business.
