Rokia
Rokia is a 43-year-old married woman, who is mother to six children. She lives with her husband and her children in the Massablacoura neighborhood of Bougouni. As she did not receive a modern education, she quickly decided to become involved in profit-making activities, and her sister taught her how to buy and sell containers, footwear and clothing. With more than ten years’ experience, she now masters her business.

Rokia had five previous group loans with an association from her neighborhood, and is now on her second individual loan. In order to expand her business, she decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso to buy 15 dozen containers and ten lengths of fabric. She gets her supplies in Burkina Faso, and works from home, in the market, and on the street throughout Bougouni’s various neighborhoods.

With this loan, Rokia plans to make a monthly profit of 65,000 francs CFA. With this profit, she hopes to be able to expand her business.
