Maïmouna
Madame Maïmouna is 46, married, and has three children. She has a traditional family and lives with her husband, children, and other households in the Missira neighbourhood of Ségou (the fourth administrative region of the republic of Mali).
Having not attended school for social reasons, she started selling various grains, condiments, and fish on her own at a young age. With over 20 years of experience, she enjoys great fame and renown. Her high sales are due to her mastery of the inner workings of the business and to her good business sense.
In order to provide customer satisfaction efficiently, she has decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso. She has had a relationship with the organization for 12 months now. She has already received one individual loan which was properly repaid. This is her second individual loan, and she will use it to buy one tonne of rice. She gets her supplies in Ségou.
Madame Maïmouna sells at retail prices, cash and credit, to a clientele made up mainly of women. With this loan, she expects to make a monthly profit of 90 000 FCFA. This will allow her to help her husband with the household costs (buying soap, medicines, paying school tuition for the children).
