Aminata
Mrs. Aminata Doucouré, 50, is married and lives with her husband and 6 children in a big traditional family with other housewives in the Secoura neighborhood of Ségou (fourth administrative region of the Republic of Mali).



Having been unable to attend school for socio-economic reasons, she began working as a petty trader together with her mother who sold cereals. After a number of years of apprenticeship, she became well-versed in the ways of commerce and had enough experience to continue on her own. She decided to sell atiéké 20 years ago and enjoys an excellent reputation in the "château" market and in all the town of Ségou where she has innumerable customers. Her "Atieké" (granulated cassava) is carefully sieved before being filled into sacks or plastic wrappers.



So as to satisfy her clientele and grow her business, she came to the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso. She has been working with us for several years. After 5 group loans and 2 individual loans, all reimbursed without difficulty, she is on her third individual loan.



She intends to use this loan to buy 3 tons of atiéké in the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire. Mrs. Aminata Doucouré sells for cash and credit to a clientele composed of men and women. With this loan she expects to make a monthly profit of 150,000 F CFA which she will use to support herself and pay her children's school fees. Her ambition is to build a house.
