A loan of $625 helped buy ingredients for the preparation of poultry feed.

Diakalia's story

Mr. Diakalia is 35 years old and lives with his wife and two children in the sub-prefecture of Ouelessebougou, in the Koulikoro region.

Diakalia did not have the opportunity to go to school. Very soon he became interested in income-generating activities, in particular the commerce of poultry feed. He learned the business from his maternal uncle, who was once a great poultry feed merchant

In order to satisfy his increasing number of customers, he decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso. This is his second loan he will use to buy ingredients to prepare poultry feed himself, which he will then retail in Ouelessebougou and surrounding villages, for cash or on credit, to a mixed clientele.

Diakalia hopes to achieve an average monthly profit of 60,000 CFA francs which will be used to repay the loan and for reinvestment in the business activities.
