Nansa
Nansa is 55 years old, married and mother to four children. She lives in a nuclear family with her husband and children in the Bagadadji district of Ségou (the Republic of Mali's fourth administrative region).

Since she did not go to school for social reasons, her parents' illiteracy, she began trading with her mother who sold clothes. After 15 years of working by her mother's side, she began developing several income-generating activities herself (the sale of clothes, shoes and sheets) and ended up making and selling fruit juices. She has been carrying out this business for the past 12 years and has a large customer base. The strength of her sales is due to the quality of her juices, which are well measured out and carefully filled into packs carrying her name.

In order to make her juice, she uses 30 liters of water, six kilos of sugar, one kilo of monkey sugar and 20 sachets of drink powder.

With a view to expanding her business so that she can meet customer demand, she turned to Soro Yiriwaso. She is on her second individual loan, having fully repaid her first. She is planning to use this new loan to buy five sacks of sugar, four cartons of plastic sachets and ten cartons of juice powder. She gets her supplies locally.

Nansa sells for cash and on credit to a mixed customer base of all ages. She expects to make a monthly profit of 60,000FCFA which she will use to repay her loan and to take care of herself and the children of her late co-wife. Her ambition is to open a general grocery store in her neighborhood.
