Diarrah
Mrs. Diarrah is 57 years old. She lives in a large family in the Lafiala district of the city of Koutiala. She has not had the opportunity to attend school, which explains her commitment to commercial activities.

After conducting several activities she is currently involved in buying and selling saltwater fish. They are the most popular because they are affordable compared to freshwater fish.

To increase her sales, she decided to join the Soro Yiriwaso micro-finance institution some years ago. After six solidarity loans (group loans) all repaid without difficulty, this is her second individual loan.

With this loan she will buy 8 boxes of fish to store in case the supplier becomes out of stock, which happens very often. She conducts her sales by the roadside in the city of Koutiala, to a clientele composed of women and men, for cash or credit.

She expects to make 90,000 FCFA profit per month, that she will use to repay loan interest to Soro Yiriwaso, meet her personal needs and invest the rest in her business activity.

She still depends on Soro Yiriwaso funding to expand and diversify her business.

Elle n’a pas eu la chance d’aller à l’école, d’où son attachement aux activités commerciales. Après avoir mené plusieurs activités, présentement elle s’est basée sur l’achat-vente de poissons de mer.

Après 6 prêts solidaire (prêt de groupe) tous remboursés sans difficulté, elle est à son 2ème prêt individuel.
