Rokia's story

Mrs Rokia is a married woman of 28 who has three children. She lives with her husband and their children in the Torakabougou quarter of Bougouni.
Having rapidly abandoned school at an early age, she decided to take up some activities which generate income, in particular the sale of condiments.
With over three years' experience, she has mastered her profession that she learned from her mother. In order to satisfy her growing clientele, she has requested a second loan from Soro Yiriwaso having repaid the first loan correctly.
With this new loan she plans to buy three packets of Maggi cubes, 10 kilos of cooking salt, three boxes of tomato concentrate, and one package of spices. She buys her stock at the big market in Bougouni. She sells her condiments to a mainly female clientele.
With this loan she hopes to make an average monthly profit of 40 000 FCFA.
With this profit she plans to expand her company.
