Adiara's story

Mrs. Adiara is a 30-year old married woman with three children and she lives with her husband and children in the Hérémakono Nord district of Bougouni. Having left school at an early age, she rapidly became interested in income-generating activities, notably the purchase and sale of clothes and shoes. She now has more than six years' experience and handles the business which she learned from her mother well.

In order to satisfy customer demand, she decided to join Soro Yiriwaso in order to buy clothes and shoes. She gets her supplies in Bamako (the capital of the Republic of Mali). She is on her second loan with Soro Yiriwaso. She sells while walking around the various districts of Bougouni and also in the market on fair days.

With this loan she is expecting to make a monthly profit of 58,000FCFA which she is planning to use to expand her business.
