In this Group: Mah , Kadiatou , Awa , Awa
The four women in the Djiguiya group are all married in monogamous families, and on average are 38 years old with four children. They all live in the Hamdallaye borough of Ségou (4th administrative region of Mali), and became acquainted as neighbours and through their revenue-generating activities at the Ségou Castle market.

This group of women sells a variety of goods: food condiments, clothing, grain cereals, etc. In order to perpetuate their revenue-generating activities and increase their working capital, they joined the Soro Yiriwaso credit loan program. They are now requesting a third group loan, having reimbursed the two preceding ones without any difficulties.

Mrs. Awa Bouaré will use her loan to buy food condiments wholesale at Ségou’s main market (powdered baobab leaves, kitchen salt, chilli peppers, pepper, Sounbala powder, etc.).

She retails her products at a stand in the centre of the Ségou Castle market, for cash or credit, to mainly women customers. Mrs. Awa Bouaré hopes to attain average monthly earnings of 30,000 FCFA, which will be put into savings and reinvested in their commercial activities to increase day-by-day their working capital.

The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.
