About Me

I was born in Bobo Dioulasso and I am a student taking night classes. Right now, I am taking classes for the third level of secondary school. I started going to school at age 7 and I needed to retake my third level course, which consists of exams. My parents could not continue paying for my day classes, so now I work at a copy shop. I make copies and bind and digitize documents. The place where I work is owned by one of my older brothers. He allowed me to also sell reloadable cards and also electronically reload people’s cards. In addition to what I make each month by working at my brother’s shop, I also profit from the sale of cards and electronic reloads. This gives me enough to take care of not only my education, which costs 35.000 francs each academic year, but I also get enough to take care of my personal needs.

My Business

I've only been selling phone cards 2 years. At first I had many issues, mostly with reloading cards electronically. Reloading requires paying close attention to the number credited with the relaod. Competition is tough in this business because there are many places that provide this service. My strength is my geographical location because I am right in front of Doctor Ouedraogo and also at the large intersection of the Mali Highway and 30 meters from Boulevard de la Revolution. I buy my cards and mobile reloads from a supplier who delivers them to the shop. I many times need to restock a second time during the day for electronic reloads. When this happens, I call my supplier, who gives me more electronic reloads remotely. I would really like this loan with Zidisha in order to handle numerous recurring issues such as stock outs. Thank you.

About Me

je suis née à Bobo Dioulasso et je suis élève en cours du soir, actuellement je fais la classe de 3ème. jai commencé l'école dès sept ans et j'ai été récalé a ma classe de troisième qui est une classe d'examen. Mes parents n'ont pas pu continuer a payer mes cours du jour donc je gère en ce moment un secretariat publique, lieu ou je fais les photocopies, les reilures, les saisies... cette entreprise appartient a un de mes grand frere. Il ma donc permis d'associer la vente de carte de recharge ainsi que la recharge electronique. En plus de ce que je gagne mensuellement avec mon frere plus les benefices généré par la vente de carte et recharge electronique je parviens a payer non seulement ma scolarite qui coutent 35 000 frs pour une année accademique mais aussi je parviens a faire face a mes petits besoins.

My Business

J'ai seulement deux ans comme expérience dans la vente de carte et recharge electronique. Au debut javais des difficultés notament avec la recharge electronique,qui demande plus d'attention sur le numero sur lequel on recharge. La concurrence est certes rude parce que on denombre plusieurs points de vente de ce même sevice, mon atout est ma situatation geographique car je suis juste en face de l'immeuble du docteur Ouedraogo et a l'intersection du grand carrefour route du mali et a 30 mètre du Boulevard de la revolution. Je paye mes cartes et recharge mobile auprès d'un fournisseur qui me livre sur place, il m'arrive souvent de faire un deuxieme approvisionnement au cour de la journee en recharge electronique, en ce moment j'apel mon fournisseur qui fait le rechargement a distance. je voudrais bien obtenir ce prêt auprès de votre structure pour faire face a ces nombreux difficultés telques les ruptures de stock qui sont repetitifs. Merci .
