Soumaila's story

Mr Soumaila is a married 36 year old man and the father of one child, who lives with this wife and child in his father's house in Bougouni. After attending Koranic school, Soumaila dedided to move to Libya in search of a better life. His dreams were never realized, and he returned to his country and was taught by his uncle how to buy and sell animals such as ox, sheep, goats, etc. He decided to join Soro Yiriwaso in order to reinforce his purchasing power, and is currently asking for his third loan, after having successfuly reimbursed the previous two. This loan will allow him to purchase three ox. He stocks up on animals around Bougouni and sells them either from his home or at the city's cattle market. His clients are mostly butchers. He hopes this loan will allow him to gain a monthly profit of 70 000 FCFA (approximately 140 USD) which he will use to cover his family's expenses and reinvest in his commercial activity.
