A loan of $825 helped to purchase plastic cooking utensils.

Souleymane's story

Born around 1981 in Kadiana, where he resides, Souleymane lives with his three children and his wife in a traditional family. Mr. Souleymane was quickly interested in revenue-making business, notably the buying and selling of plastic cooking utensils. He is very sought after in the market of Kadiana, especially on the day of the trade show. Strengthened by his 8 years of experience in this field, he is collaborating with Soro Yiriwaso in order to increase his business funds so that he can satisfy his clientele, which is constantly growing, and is on his seventh loan, having paid back the previous loans in full. Souleymane expects to use his loan to buy plastic cooking utensils. He stocks up at the wholesalers in Bamako. He makes his sales for cash and sometimes for credit to a clientele made up of men and women. Souleymane hopes to make a monthly profit of 100,000 f CFA which will be used to support the needs of his family, pay back the loan and reinvest in his businesses.
