A loan of $1,025 helped buy agricultural inputs.


Oumar's story

Mr. Oumar was born around 1973 in Konobougou. He resides in Konobougou in his traditional family home, and is the married father of eight children. For social reasons, Mr. Diamba left school at an early age to engage in revenue-generating activities.

He is currently the owner of a livestock feed store. Wanting to diversify his activities he began trading agricultural inputs on his own nine years ago. He resupplies almost every week from suppliers in Segou.

Retail sales are conducted for cash, to a mixed clientele in the markets of surrounding villages. To better organize his activities, Mr. Mamoudou decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso where he is on his very first loan.

As a result, Mr. Mamoudou sees his capacities strengthened, and expects average monthly profits of 140,000 CFA francs, which will be reinvested in his business.
