Idrissa's story

Idrissa was born in 1980 in Ségou. He is a married father of two, and lives in a traditional large family with his parents in the town of Koutiala. He is a trained accountant, and has worked for several years managing his father's pharmaceutical store. In order to ensure that his ever-increasing customer base remains satisfied, he has decided to seek assistance from the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution, and is on his fourth loan. This loan will be used to buy boxes of pharmaceutical products from pharmaceutical wholesalers located in his town.

Idrissa sells on a cash and credit basis, and has a varied clientele. He plans to make a monthly income of 150,000 francs CFA, which he will use to repay his loan and cover his family's expenses. The rest of the money will be reinvested in his business.
