Dramane's story

Mr. Dramane G. is married and the father of three children. He lives with his wife and children in the Massablacoura neighborhood in Bougouni (in the Sikasso region). Mr. Dramane G. left school early in order to devote himself to revenue-generating activities. After years of business attempts realized without success, he finally opted to buy and sell various items in a small shop. With more than two years of experience, he has mastered his business. In order to obtain a consistent working capital, he has decided to join Soro Yiriwaso's loan program, with whom this will be his first loan. He intends to use his loan to buy various articles for his small shop. He buys his stock in Bougouni and conducts his sales in his shop to a diverse clientele. He intends to earn a monthly profit of 50,000 FCFA which will be used to support his household expenses and to reinvest in his business.
