Mrs Hawa is 43 years old, married, a mother of 7 children, and lives with her husband and other family members in the Diamarabougou neighborhood in the commune of Markala, the fourth largest administrative region in Mali. Mrs Hawa did not attend much school, but learned the aspects of being involved in a small business as a child, while being next to her mom, who sold condiments. For the last 30 years she has been selling rice and has gained a very positive reputation for being welcoming and for selling cereals of great quality. In order to increase her capital and to insure she has enough merchandise to sell, she is asking for a loan from Soro Yiriwaso. After having correctly reimbursed 9 other group loans, she is asking for her first individual loan, which she plans to use towards the purchase of 12 bags of rice. She stocks up on rice from the 'Office of Niger'. Mrs Hawa sells for cash and credit to a customer base comprised of both men and women. She hopes to earn a monthly profit of 45,000 FCFA (approximately 84 USD), which she will used to take care of the needs of her home.
