About Me

My name is Zalissa Kabore/Congo, and I was born in 1959 in a billage situated about 150 km from the city of Ouagadougou. My father had several wives, and our mother was the last one. My father was the traditional chief of our village. I have been married since 1980 and I live currently with my husband in Ouagadougou in sector 25. We have five children, four girls and a boy.

My Business

I have sold firewood for almost four years. I go in the brush looking for wood to bring home. Often I also buy wood from men who go cut the brush with their carts. I sell a bundle of wood for 1,500, 2,000 or 3,000 FCFA according to size. With financial support, I can grow my business and buy a large quantity of wood to offer to my customers. This is why I have come to your microfinance organization.

Loan Proposal

Dear lenders,
This second loan will be used to buy a lot of wood to store at home and sell on to my customer base which is very large and keeps coming back to buy more wood for their kitchens. I am very happy because your loan had a very positive effect on my business. Thank you for your confidence.

Je suis dans la vente du bois il y'a presque quatres années.

Je vends un fagot de bois à mille cinq cent, deux mille et trois milles Franc selon la quantité du fagot. Avec une aide financière je pourrai agrandir mon commerce en acheter une grande quantité de bois pour mettre à la disposition de mes clients; Raison pour laquelle je viens vers votre institution de microfinance.
