Cheick Oumar's story

Mr. Cheick Oumar Sangaré is a married, 43-year-old man who is the father of four children. He lives in a nuclear family with his wife and children at his late father's home in Bougouni, in the Hérémakono Nord quarter. After having spent several years at the modern school, Cheick Oumar decided to leave and start a business. He was primarily a shepherd who sold commercial beef, but was unsuccessful. He finally decided to learn his uncle's business of buying and selling shirts, shoes, and celebratory clothing. With more than 12 years of experience, he teaches his trade to others and is often solicited for his services.
In order to better meet the demands of his clients, Cheick Oumar decided to join Soro Yiriwaso. He is on his fourth individual loan. All of his previous loans have been repaid in full. He plans on using this loan to purchase dozens of shirts, pairs of shoes, and diverse holiday clothing. He gets his stock in Lomé. His clients are both male and female. With this loan, he foresees making a monthly profit of 75,000 FCFA which will serve to grow his boutique and contribute to his family's needs.
