A loan of $500 helped to buy some fuel.


Bourama's story

Born around 1982 in Bangoua, Bourama now resides in Kolondièba, and lives in a traditional family with his wife and one child.

Not having had the opportunity to attend school - and this for social reasons - Bourama quickly developed an interest in income-generating activities, particularly in selling and buying fuels and lubricants, which he purchases in Nièna. He enjoys a good reputation and receives a high demand from his customers in Kolondièba and its surroundings.

Having worked in this field for five years already and looking for additional financial resources, Bourama has decided to join Soro Yiriwaso. This is his first loan.

He will use his loan to buy two barrels of fuel and twenty cans of oil.

He is expecting monthly profits to reach 40,000 CFA francs. These profits will be used to meet his family's needs, repay his loan and reinvest in business.
