Adama's story

Adama Sidibe is married, 38 years old and the father of two children. He lives with his wife and children in the Massablacoura neighborhood of the city of Bougouni. Mr. Sidibe was educated, in the Arabic language, after which he decided to earn a living. He spent years trying different businesses, such as selling grain, but without success. After much thought, he decided to learn from a friend how to run a business selling various items such as clothes, shoes, radios ... After more than 5 years of experience, he has mastered his business. His ready-to-wear shop is located in the heart of Bougouni's large market. To bolster his business, he decided to join Soro Yiriwaso to buy clothes, shoes, radios and other small items. He gets his supplies in Bamako. This is his second loan with Soro Yiriwaso and the previous loan has been fully repaid. His clientele consists of all social classes. He expects to make a monthly profit of 75,000 CFA.
