A loan of $1,050 helped to purchase cattle.

Mamourou's story

Mamourou as born in 1973 in Diendio where he now lives in a traditional family with his wife and 5 children. He quickly became involved in business, specifically in the purchase and sale of cattle. He is in high demand in the market of Kadiana, especially on festival days.

With 6 years of experience in his area of business, Mamourou partnered with Soro Yiriwaso to increase his business funds in order to better meet the needs of his growing customer base. This is his first loan with the organization. Mamourou plans to use it to purchase cattle, which he obtains from cattle raisers in the neighboring towns. He then sells the livestock for cash and sometimes for credit at the market, to a customer base made up mostly of men.

Mamourou hopes to earn a monthly profit of 120,000 francs CFA, which he will use to provide for the needs of his family, pay back the loan, and reinvest in his business.
