Adama Mama
Mr. Adama Mama D., 33, lives with his wife and child in his father's household in the Hérémakono Centre district of the town of Bougouni (third administrative region of the Republic of Mali).



Adama tried out several money-earning activities without success, notably buying and selling clothing and shoes, and he even tried out being a chauffeur for a private citizen. He ended up deciding to sell industrially-produced drinks and has been at this business for the last two years. He got into this commercial niche selling drinks with the help of his uncle. Religious holidays and important ceremonies (baptism, marriage) are occasions where a lot of drinks are sold, as is this season of the year where the weather is so very hot.



In his search for complementary financial resources, he decided to turn to Soro Yiriwaso with whom he is on his first individual loan.



He buys his merchandise in Bamako (capital of the Republic of Mali) from official depots and then sells it in Bougouni to a clientele composed of shopkeepers and restaurant and bar owners. With this loan Mr. Adama Mama D. expects to make a monthly profit of 40,000 F CFA. In the coming years, he hopes to have his own drinks depot in Bougouni.

Monsieur Adama Mama D. est un âgé de 33 ans et vit avec sa femme et son enfant chez son père dans le quartier Hérémakono Centre de la ville de Bougouni (troisième région administrative de la république du Mali).
Adama a tenté plusieurs activités génératrices sans réussite notamment l’achat et la vente d’habits, de chaussures, a même fait le chauffeur d’un particulier. Il finit par opter pour la vente des boissons de fabrication industrielle depuis maintenant deux ans. Il a entrepris ce créneau commercial (vente de boissons) par l’entremise de son oncle. Les fêtes religieuses et les grandes cérémonies (baptême, mariages) sont les occasions pendant lesquelles les ventes de boissons sont considérables, sans oublier ces temps ci, période d’intense chaleur.
Dans ses recherches de ressources financières complémentaires il décida de faire recours à Soro Yiriwaso avec qui il est à son premier prêt individuel.
Il s’approvisionne à Bamako (capitale de la république du Mali) auprès des dépositaires agrées pour venir revendre à Bougouni à une clientèle composée de boutiquiers, de restaurateurs et des détenteurs de bar.
Avec ce prêt, Monsieur Adama Mama D. compte réaliser un bénéfice mensuel de 40 000 FCFA.
Dans les années à venir il envisage être un dépositaire de boissons à Bougouni.
