Born in April 1980 in Bamako, Sekouba lives with his five children and his wife in a monogamous family in the N'tentou neighborhood of the city of Ouelessebougou.

A teacher by profession, Sekouba quickly became interested in income-generating activities, including the purchase and sale of apparels and ready-to-wear clothing.

Having successfully repaid the previous loan, Sekouba is on his second loan with Soro Yiriwaso, which will be used to buy three bales of ready-to-wear clothing from wholesalers.

He sells retail for cash or credit, through home delivery and at the Ouelessebougou market, to a clientele composed of men and women.

Sekouba hopes to make monthly profits of 40,000 FCFA that will be used to support his family, reimburse the loan and reinvest in the business.
