Moussa's story

Mr. Moussa T. is married and he is the father of 3 children. He was born in Loulouni, Sikasso (third administrative region in Mali) on 4-07-1978. He lives in Loulouni in a monogamous family.

He has worked as a joiner for the past 8 years, making and repairing metallic items such as doors, windows, and chairs. His business is quite successful given his experience in the field.

This will be the first time he has approached Soro Yiriwaso (Kiva Field Partner) for a loan. He hopes to use it to purchase essential materials for his business.

He makes doors and windows, taking orders for new items, and he carries out repairs. His finalizes his transactions in cash only and he caters to a clientele made up of men and women.

He hopes to earn 40.000 francs every month and it will be used to pay his store's lease, to hire on more apprentices, and a part will be put away in savings.
