Maky is 22 years old. He is single and has no children. He lives in a traditional family in the Hamdallaye neighborhood of the city of Ségou. For social reasons, Maky did not attend school. Instead, he got involved in income-generating activities, working alongside his father who was himself involved in several activities (he worked as a middleman, sold various goods etc.) After learning from his father for several years, Maky decided to work on his own and started to buy and sell fuel and lubricants. He has been involved in this business for nine years and is very experienced in his field. He has many customers.

Eager to expand his business and to make more profits, Maky joined Soro Yiriwaso over a year ago. He plans to use this new loan to buy 70 liters of gasoline. He stocks up locally.

Maky sells his goods for cash to both men and women. With his loan, he is expecting monthly profits to reach 60,000 CFA francs, which will allow him to repay his loan and diversify his activity.
