Rokia
Born in 1981, ROKIA lives with her four children in a traditional extended family in Commune Rurale de OUELESSEBOUGOU. She soon became interested in revenue-generating work at her aunt's side. Her aunt used to do commerce in a variety of goods. After years of experience with her, ROKIA opted for buying and selling shoes, fish, fine accessories, etc.

After having properly repaid the two previous loans, ROKIA is now on her third loan with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso. The loan will be used to purchase pairs of shoes, some accessories, and fish from producers and wholesalers in Bamako. Accepting cash or credit from a mixed customer base, she makes her sales at the OUELESSEBOUGOU market and nearby.

ROKIA hopes to make an average monthly profit of 80,000 francs CFA that will be used to help out her husband in meeting family needs, pay back the loan, and reinvest in her business.
