Nana Siata
Born in 1984 in Tombouctou, Nana Siata lives with her 4 children and her husband in a traditional family environment in the district of Heremakono, Bougouni town. Not having had the chance to progress with her studies, she quickly became interested in revenue-generating activities, notably the buying and selling of clothing, carpets, bedspreads and plates coming from Mauritania.

Nana Siata is on her 1st loan from Soro Yiriwaso, which will be used to buy 2 dozen carpets and 5 boxes of plates. She makes her sales from her home and on the streets for cash or credit, to a retail clientèle made up of men and women. Nana Siata hopes to make a monthly profit of 100 000 francs, which will be used to help her husband meet the family's needs, to repay the loan and to reinvest in her business.
