Moussa's story

Mr. Moussa S. is a 37-year-old married man and father of one child. He lives with his wife and his child in the neighborhood of Torakabougou in Bougouni (Third administrative region of Mali).

Mr. Moussa S. stopped going to school early on and tried for years various income-generating activities. These were not successful mostly because of his lack of working capital.

Eventually Moussa learned the sale of fuel from his friends. This is in addition to his services of spraying courtyards and gardens. He has a 10-year experience and masters his activity.

In order to meet his clients' demand he decided to join the loan program from Soro Yiriwaso to buy five 20-liter drums of diesel fuel and products for spraying. He gets his supplies in Bougoni. This is his first experience with Soro Yiriwaso. His shop is located on the road from Bougoni to Sikasso. His customers are local people.

He hopes to make a monthly profit of 45 000 Francs CFA which will be used mostly to improve his business.
