After his military retirement, Boubou D. is returning to one of his money-making businesses, poultry-farming, which he learned from a friend for over two years. With the intention of growing his business, he decided to join microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso who has just granted him his first loan. He plans to buy 200 chicks, 8 feeding troughs, 8 drinking troughs, 2 boxes of vaccines, 20 bags of vitamins, and 1400 kilograms of feed. He gets his supplies from Bamako, the capital of the Republic of Mali. He sells his products (eggs, hens) to a clientele consisting of professional sellers in poultry markets, restaurateurs, food shops, etc. Holiday periods (traditional and religious), social events (weddings, baptisms), and weekends are conducive to sales. With this loan, he plans to be able to earn 80,000 CFA francs per month, which he will use to invest in his business, pay interest on the loan, and provide for his family.
