Moussa Moise's story

Born in BAMAKO, MOUSSA MOISE lives with his wife in a nuclear family in N’TENTOU, in Commune Rurale de OUELESSEBOUGOU, Préfecture de KATI (Région de Koulikoro), Republic of MALI. Not having had the chance to progress in school, MOUSSA MOISE soon became interested in revenue-generating work, especially the buying and selling of beverages: Fanta, Coca Cola, pineapple juice, Tonic, Sprite, apple juice, etc.

MOUSSA MOISE is on his first individual loan with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso that will be used to purchase 10 cases of Fanta, 10 cases of Coca Cola, 5 cases of pineapple juice, and 3 cases of apple juice. He gets his supplies from wholesalers in BAMAKO. And he makes his sales at the retail level to a mixed customer base paying with cash or credit, in and around OUELESSEBOUGOU.

MOUSSA MOISE hopes to make a monthly profit of 80,000 francs CFA that will be used to pay back the loan and to reinvest the rest in the commerce of beverages.
