Mamoudou Garba's story

Mamoudou Garba is over 39 years old, married to 2 women and the father of 4 children. He lives with his wife and children in a nuclear family in Lafiabougou, one of the popular districts of Sikasso town (3rd administrative region of the Republic of Mali). Having tried several businesses without success, Mamoudou Garba started a rotisserie business (selling roast sheep and goats) 18 years ago. He joined the Soro Yiriwaso MFI over a year ago in order to be able to satisfy his growing clientèle and is on his 2nd loan.

Mamoudou Garba plans to use this new loan to buy 10 sheep and 10 goats from the villages surrounding Sikasso town. He keeps the animals at his place of business before killing them, roasting them and reselling them to a clientèle made up of heads of family. Thanks to this loan, he expects to make a monthly profit of 90 000 francs, part of which will be used to cover the family expenses and pay the interest on his loan and part of which will be reinvested in his business.
