Bocar Sidiki's story

Mr. Bocar Sidiki is 36 years old and the father of two children. He lives with his wives and children at his father's home in the Dialanicoro neighborhood of Bougouni.

He did not go to modern school, and for years he dedicated himself to learning how to drive delivery vans along with a friend. After a few years, he earned his driver's license and started to work as a driver.

It was during this time that he found the working capital to start his grain and vegetable business. Due to its profitability, this business is his primary business today. For the past three years, this has also been his only business.

A friend who is a client of Soro Yiriwaso introduced him to the institution, and he decided to join in order to buy four tons of various grains. He buys his supplies in Manankoro et Gueya. This is his first loan with Soro Yiriwaso. He sells his goods at the Bougouni market and in an area of Bamako.

Monsieur Bocar Sidiki would like to earn monthly revenues of 50,000 FCFA. With the profits, he would like to grow his business.
