The Badenya Ton 3 group is made up of eight married women, most of whom live in large traditional families. They have an average age of 38 years and an average of 4 children and all live in the village of Farabougou in the rural commune of Tesserla in the Ségou region (4th administrative region of Mali).
They know each other through marriage, kinship, and neighborly ties. In order to increase their crop size and diversify the kinds of crops grown, they have turned to Soro Yiriwaso and are on their first seasonal loan.
The group members will grow peanuts, millet, and sesame.
Known for her impressive peanut production, Mrs. Djouma D. plans on using the loan to buy 50 kg of peanut seeds and 3 sacks of grains, and to pay for workers to weed and harvest the peanuts.
She buys seeds at the market in Gouassola and she employs men from her village to work in the fields.
On 3.2 hectares of land, she plans to harvest: 30 sacks of peanuts and 4 sacks of millet. The millet and a portion of the peanuts will be kept for the group's families, while the rest will be sold at the Ségou market to a mixed client base.
The profits will be used to take care of children's schooling costs as well as household expenses.
Mrs. Djouma D.'s goal is to buy agricultural materials that will be able to lessen the expenses incurred from working her fields.

Elles se sont connues à travers des liens de mariage, de parenté et de voisinage. Dans le but d’augmenter leurs superficies de culture et diversifier les spéculations, elles ont fait recours à Soro Yiriwaso et sont à leur 1er prêt de campagne.
Les membres du groupe vont cultiver de l’arachide, du mil et du sésame.
Connue pour sa grande productivité d’arachide, Madame Djouma D. compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter, 50kg de semence d’arachide, 3 sacs de complexe céréales et recruter la main d’œuvre pour les activités de sarclage et de récolte d’arachide dans son champ.
Elle se ravitaille en semence à la foire de Gouassola et en main d’œuvre avec les hommes du village.
Elle compte récolter sur une superficie de 3,2 hectares: 30 sacs d’arachide et 4 sacs de mil. Le mil et une partie de la production d’arachide rentre dans la consommation familiale tandis que le reste est vendu à la foire de Ségou à une clientèle mixte.
Le bénéfice obtenu est utilisé pour prendre en charge les frais scolaires des enfants et les dépenses du foyer au quotidien.
Madame Djouma D. a pour ambition l’achat des matériels agricoles qui pourra amoindrir les charges d’exploitation de ses champs dans le futur.
