Aminata
Aminata is 34 years old, married and the mother of 5 children. She lives in a traditional family setting with her husband and other couples in the district of Bagadadji, in Ségou. Due to social reasons (she comes from a family with well-established ancestral values), she did not go to school and became involved in revenue-generating activities at a young age, selling rice alongside her mother in the rice producing region of M’Bewani in the Niger Office zone. After several years of apprenticeship, she started working alone, selling products like clothing, firewood, cereal, fruit juice, yoghurt and incense. She ended up deciding to specialise in the sale of yoghurt and the production and sale of fruit juice, which she has been doing for 5 years now and has a significant customer base.

To make her juice she needs 10 kilos of sugar, 12 sachets of powdered juice, 20 sachets of valine sugar and 6 kilos of ginger. In order to be able to get a new freezer and to strengthen her business, she is requesting this new loan. She has been with Soro Yiriwaso for 12 months, having already repaid an individual loan. This is her second loan, which she plans to use to buy a freezer and 2 bags of sugar. She gets her supplies locally.

Aminata sells her products for cash to a mixed retail clientele. With this loan, she expects to make a monthly profit of 150 000 francs which will enable her to replay the loan and carry out other revenue-generating activities.

Après plusieurs années d’apprentissage, elle commence à évoluer seule en menant les activités de vente d’habits, de bois de chauffe, de céréales, de jus de fruits, des yaourts, de l’encens, etc. Elle finit par opter se spécialiser dans le commerce de yaourt et la préparation et vente de jus de fruits depuis maintenant 5 ans et jouit d’une grande clientèle.

Dans le souci d’avoir un nouveau congélateur et de renforcer son fonds de commerce, elle sollicite ce nouveau prêt.

Elle est à son 2ème prêt qu’elle compte utiliser, pour acheter un congélateur et 2 sacs de sucre. Elle s’approvisionne sur place.
