Born in OUALA, DJELIKA lives with her five children and husband in a nuclear family in FILABOUGOU, in Commune Rurale de OUELESSEBOUGOU, Préfecture de KATI (Région de Koulikoro), Republic of Mali. Not having had the chance to progress in school, ROKIA soon became interested in revenue-generating businesses, namely, the buying and selling of cloth: fabrics and Wax ’pagnes’ (the colorful cloth of western Africa).

DJELIKA is on her first individual loan with Soro Yiriwaso. It will be used to purchase 20 lengths of ‘pagne’ cloth. She gets her supplies of it in Bamako. And she makes her sales retail to men and women customers paying with cash or credit at her home, at the market, and at surrounding fairs.

DJELIKA hopes to make a monthly profit of 80,000 francs CFA that will be used to help out her husband in meeting family needs, pay back the loan, and reinvest the rest in the commerce of fabrics.
