Mamary's story

Mamary is a 32-year-old married father of two and lives with his wife and children in his dad's house in the Hérémakono-Nord de Bougouni region.
After finishing secondary studies and receiving an accounting degree, Mamary has gone several years without a job.
He tried several jobs such as selling cattle, sheep, and goats but with no success, he ultimately decided to sell poultry.
With three years of experience, he is becoming an expert at his job which he learned from one of his friends.
To take care of his chickens, Mamary decided to take out a loan through Soro Yiriwaso to purchase: 1 ton of grain for feed, 2 cartons of medicine, and 200 chicks. He is on his fourth loan with Soro Yiriwaso and his three prior loans were all repaid in full. He buys his supplies in Boubouni and in Bamako (capital of the Republic of Mali). The eggs are sold to professional buyers (shops, food industries, and restaurants) and to home consumers. After they are laid, the eggs are sold at the market and in restaurants. With this loan, Mamary hopes to make a monthly profit of 75,500 FCFA.
With this profit, he hopes to increase the size of his business.
