A loan of $800 helped to purchase steers for slaughter.


Zoumana's story

Mr. ZOUMANA is married, 46 years old, and a father of ten children. He lives in a polygamous family with his two wives, children, and parents in Ouelessebougou. He has been a butcher for sixteen years and plans on using this loan to purchase three head of cattle to slaughter in order to satisfy the daily demand, which is growing.

He sells at the OUELESSEBOUGOU market square to a customer base composed of housewives and restauranteurs. He expects to make an average monthly profit of 100,000 francs CFA that will serve to pay back the loan and to meet family needs. Mr. ZOUMANA is on his fifth loan, and the four previous ones were correctly repaid.
