Sanata, who was born around 1968 in Tonfouga in the commune of Bougouni, is a married woman who is mother to four children and who lives with her husband and children in a nuclear family in Banconi, one of the outer distircts of the town Sikasso (the Republic of Mali's third administrative region). Having carried out a large number of unsuccessful activities, she began buying and selling "pagnes wax" (highly decorative and colourful pieces of fabric) and kitchen utensils around five years ago.

With a view to responding better to ever-increasing customer demand, she decided to join the microfinance institution, Soro Yiriwaso, around two years ago. After four solidarity (group) loans with a women's association from her neighborhood, she is now on her first individual loan. This first loan will allow her to buy five pieces of "pagnes wax" and two parcels of cups in Bobo Dioulasso (Burkina Faso), which she will sell on a door-to-door basis in Sikasso to a customer base made up essentially of women.

With this loan she expects to make a monthly profit of 130,000FCFA, which will be used principally to expand her business, repay the interest on her loan and contribute to family expenses.
