Moumine's story

Born around 1974 in Nièssoumana, Moumine lives with his wife and 3 children in a large, traditional family setting in the rural community of Fakola. Not having had the opportunity to go to school, Moumine quickly became engaged in revenue-generating activities, most notably the buying and selling of animals (oxen, goats, sheep, etc.). He is held in high regard and much sought-out in Fakola and the surrounding region.

Moumine is on his first loan with Soro Yiriwaso, which will be used to buy 10 oxen in the village of Finiko and the surrounding area. He makes his sales, for cash or credit, in the Republic of the Ivory Coast and the markets of Fakola and Farako, to a customer base principally composed of butchers, resellers and breeders. Moumine hopes to make a monthly profit of 125 000 francs, which he will use to take care of his family's needs, repay the loan and reinvest in his business.
