Yacouba
Mr. Yacouba, who is unmarried and without children, was born in June 1977 in San. He lives in a traditional family at his older brother's house in Dioïla, Région de Koulikoro, Republic of Mali.
Yacouba is a livestock farmer and livestock merchant established on his own for a while. He gets his supplies of rams from the countryside and feeds them for a while in order to earn more from the weight gain. Then he sells them to customers, either in Bamako or in Dioïla. He counts about 20 head in his flock.

With this loan, he intends to purchase about 20 rams and some feed. The previous loan was indeed settled. He asserts that the ideal period is right now because the Tabaski holiday is approaching. The sales are arranged a month or two before Tabaski, actually within days.

Yacouba hopes to make an average monthly profit of 90,000 francs CFA. This profit will be used to purchase spent cows and young bulls to fatten.
